Lynn Batham, community fundraising coordinator with Ness, said: “We are extremely grateful to the businesses who have sponsored and everyone who is participating in this fantastic event.

“Donations raised from fundraising events like these help make a huge difference to the lives of thousands of blind and deaf people across the north east of Scotland.

“We want to make sure anyone in the north-east with a sensory impairment is given all the support they need to live as independently as possible and participate normally in society.

“By our supporters sponsoring and taking part in fundraising events like this enables us to do exactly that.”

To register for the event, visit or register on the day at The Hut on Liddell Place, Chapelton from 9.30am at an extra cost of £5 per person.
