A CHARITY walk to raise cash for Help For Heroes is being staged between Queensferry and Leith and back.

Uphall woman Lauren McNeish is organising the 23-mile walk and she is looking for people in the Journal and Gazette area who are willing to join her.

Lauren has organised several fundraising events and the Help For Heroes fundraiser is close to her heart.

Her brother is currently in the last phase of becoming a Marine while her fiance’s father is ex-Army. Having attended many events with him such as Armed Forces Day, Lauren said she had met many inspiring men and women in the Armed Forces.

She said: “This charity is just such an amazing cause and it really does help to support men, woman and familes of the Armed Forces.”

The event will take place on Sunday, May 19, leaving from Queensferry at 8.30am. Entry is £6.
