FOUR colleagues from an Easter Ross supermarket took steps to boost the coffers of a Highland charity.

The friends from the Tain Tesco store undertook the Maggie’s Highland run 50 miles challenge.

Due to the weather and icy conditions during much of the time of the challenge, most of it was walked. But the challenge was met!

Ceri Cattanch, who lives in Inver; Denise Hart, of Dornoch; Lorraine MacDonald, of Alness, and community champion Emily Lacey-Teagle, who is also from Dornoch, took part.

Each raised donations individually and via Facebook.

Lorraine was stopped by a passer-by while out and handed a donation. Ceri also chatted to some customers and was sponsored by them for her efforts.

Lorraine is in remission from breast cancer and was off for a portion of 2020. She benefited from Maggie’s and the charity is very close to her heart.

Between them they donated almost £1800 to the grateful charity.
