ALLOA’s Rotary Club presented the Ochil Mountain Rescue Team with a cheque after Breaking the Law earlier this year.

Five men climbed the steep and rocky hill rising at the head of Tillicoultry Glen to its 638m summit in the Ochils in June in less than 10 hours.

However, not content with conquering the summit once, they climbed it five times in succession as the climb of 3,485m is the equivalent height of the trek from the Everest Base Camp to the summit of the world’s highest peak.

Scott Doyle, who completed the feat with five other men, said: “We wanted to raise funds for two hugely effective charities – one local, Ochils Mountain Rescue Team (OMRT), and one international, Global Sight Solutions. Both are causes supported by the Rotary Club of Alloa.”

Speaking at the time of the feat, Ross MacIntyre, OMRT secretary, said: "Ochils MRT are very grateful for the continued support of the Rotary Club of Alloa.

"We have missed supporting their sponsored walk due to the pandemic and would like to say a huge thank you to the Breaking the Law team for their efforts on the day.

"A very tough challenge and a huge amount of effort in organising and fundraising. Well done."

In the days after the feat, Scott added: “This has been a really difficult year for the club, with most fundraising activities being curtailed by the pandemic.

"Usually at this time of the year, we get lots of local groups involved in raising their own funds via the Rotary Nebit Walk and the Look Aboot Ye Challenge – but neither is possible this year – so we decided to 'Break The Law' instead."
