AN EAST Neuk team has risen to a steep charity challenge.
The four members ascended the four peaks of the Western Isles for the Fishermen’s Mission.
And the Anstruther team not only managed the huge challenge of climbing Canna, Muck, Eigg and Rum but also raised £4268.31 in the process.
The only male on the trip, Ian Murray, skipper of The Reaper, was joined by Shiela Taylor, Kelly Scott and Louise Dick.
Although the weather was kind to the trekkers, each had to call on reserve strengths to climb all four peaks.
The final peak of the challenge, Askival, was the most challenging and tested not only physical agility but also the mental strength of some of the challengers with less of a passion for heights!
Ms Taylor from the Scottish Fisheries Museum, said: “Although it was a real physical challenge we had a fantastic time. It gave us a chance to meet other people that support the Mission.
“Whilst we all found it very demanding it is nothing to the challenges our fishermen face at sea every day.”
The Fishermen’s Mission is a charity that serves a vital role to fishermen and their families, providing care and support when they are in need.
It is also there when tragedy strikes, supporting widows and children when fishermen have been lost at sea.
