HARDY participants of a fundraising walk in the Wee County braved the rain, hail and wind to complete the route last month.

The Look Aboot Ye Challenge, organised by the Rotary Club of Alloa, saw 83 people take on route between Tillicoultry and Dollar and back again, netting cash for their own local good causes.

Teams taking part included Alva Beavers, Alloa Musical Players, Resonate Together, Tillicoultry Bowling Club and the Clackmannanshire Befriending Project.

Lochies School was also there and had the largest representation with 39 people taking part when the event went ahead on Saturday, April 27.

Those taking part used bikes, buggies, wheelchairs and their feet to complete the route, which also included a quiz to make it more interesting, with the walk followed by a rain-soaked but tasty barbecue at the start and finish line located at Hillfoots Rugby Club.

Playing a part in the event’s success was the fact it was fully accessible with families and friends taking part.

It was arranged and stewarded by members and friends of the local rotary with the team led by community service convener Geoff Storer.

Another opportunity to raise funds with the rotary is just around the corner as well.

On Sunday, June 2, The Rotary Nebit Hill Challenge will take place, also starting and finishing at Hillfoots RFC in Tillicoultry.

Further details are due to appear on the Rotary Club of Alloa Facebook page.
