A group from Lochgilphead took part in a Zipslide Zinger challenge at Crieff Hydro in Perthshire on Saturday May 5 to raise money for the MS Society.

Karen Pickering, Eli Pickering, Marte MacBrayne and Christine Irvine successfully flew through the tree tops for 230 metres admiring the stunning Perthshire views.

The group has so far raised more than £400 and counting, with offline donations and sponsorship forms still be tallied up.

Karen Pickering said she enjoyed the event but it was a bit of a task getting to the top.

The team’s JustGiving page is still live. If you would like to donate, go to justgiving.com/fundraising/teampickering.
