Walkers in Peterhead have put their best feet forward to raise thousands of pounds for charity.
The annual Peterhead Prowl – now in its second year – encouraged locals to walk a five or 10km route around the outskirts of the port this summer to raise money for Chest Heart and Stroke Scotland (CHSS).
Organiser Nicola Drummond nominated the charity because a family member is helped by the stroke nurses the charity provides in the north-east.
This year, the popular event raised £2,000 for CHSS while the group has also raised £2,000 for Breast Cancer Now.
Last night, the organisers thanked the 250 people who took part, and confirmed they would “definitely” run another event next year.
CHSS fundraising officer Katie Jones thanked the participants for their “generous” efforts.
She said: “We are so grateful for the support of the committee in organising this fantastic event and raising a substantial amount for CHSS.
“Community fundraising activities like the Peterhead Prowl are crucial in raising awareness of CHSS services in the north-east and all across Scotland.
“The money raised will help our vital services ensure that people who are affected by debilitating chest, heart and stroke illness get the opportunity to have an improved quality of life and rehabilitation.”
A similar Prowl event was held annually in Fraserburgh which raised thousands of pounds for cancer research.
Its walkers raised about £700,000 for potentially life-saving studies at Aberdeen University, as well as helping to kit out a laboratory with vital equipment.
