Two Lochgilphead women are taking on a mighty challenge to raise money for a local good cause – and one close to their hearts.

Manager of the Argyll Book Centre Eli Pickering and her daughter Marte will taking on the Kiltwalk ‘Mighty Stride’ – 26 miles in a day – later this month to help raise funds for the local MS Centre.

Eli said: ‘The MS Centre in Lochgilphead is a great place for help, support, and therapies including a hyperbaric chamber for my daughter Karen, who has been suffering from MS for 10 years, and a lot of others in the area with MS and other long-term conditions.

‘Please help us raise some much-needed funds for this great local charity.’
