THE memory of a much-missed Ross-shire woman will be honoured at one of the biggest showcase events in the county.

Jackie Sutherland died in February of 2017, aged just 52, following a long and brave battle, with a glioblastoma multiforme (GBM).

She had been given a terminal diagnosis three years prior to that after having months of excruciating sore heads.

Her loving family, devastated by their loss, decided to dedicate fundraising efforts in her memory in favour of the Brain Tumour Charity.
