The Lee O’Brien Solvent Trust has come up with a brand new concept to highlight its commitment to preventing drug deaths - and raise money at the same time.
The charity aims to raise enough pounds that, if were laid out side-by-side, they would stretch for a mile.
This mile is to resemble the fact the charity will go that extra mile to help in preventing death in Scotland due to solvents.
According to the charity, solvent abuse is a rising issue in Scotland, with more people dying every year, many of these deaths are accidental, because people do not know that the products they are using every day can be dangerous if used incorrectly.
The charity would love to make it to the mile, but all funds donated to the charity are greatly appreciated.
Stuart Pearson, development manager for the charity, said: “LOST aims to do everything it possibly can to raise awareness of the dangers and get support for anyone who needs it. The money donated to the charity goes a long way in making a difference in Scotland and helping to save lives.”
