Cyclists are gearing up to raise funds for terminal cancer.
The Kayleigh’s Wee Stars Charity Cycle Challenge takes place on October 5 in Ballater, offering three scenic distances around the Deeside countryside of 20 miles, 57 miles and “Kayleigh’s Big Star” 95-mile route.
Cyclists will use pedal power to raise funds for the charity which was set up in 2012 by Jonathan and Anna Cordiner after they lost their daughter Kayleigh to terminal illness.
The Oldmeldrum-based organisation supports families across Scotland who have a child with terminal illness by providing grants for them to create special memories or provide financial support.
In the last seven years, more than £750,000 has been distributed to almost 300 families across Scotland.
Mr Cordiner said: “We are very much looking forward to our seventh Kayleigh’s Wee Stars Cycle.
“Our cyclists are getting ready to take on either the 20, 57 or 95-mile routes, so all we need now is the weather.
“We also have an exciting raffle and are pre-selling tickets.
“Top prizes include Liverpool v Man City Tickets for November, a signed Dons football, Disney on Ice tickets, velodrome tickets and much more.
“Please come and help us raise vital funds for terminally ill children across Scotland.”
