Around 45 people are taking a stroll across the Forth Bridge this Saturday to raise money for a valid cause.

The stroll is in aid of Austism Rocks (Fife)s (Fife), a fully-registered Scotish charity – founded and chaired by Liza Quin, of Methil – which has a range of aims, including a purpose-built centre in Levenmouth for treatment and understanding of autism.

The group is also hoping to secure premises under the Stalled Spaces initiative – which makes use of vacant, derelict or neglected spaces in and around the Kingdom’s town centres – to start a pop-up shop if possible and hopefully secure greater funding, while it is in talks with a number of local businesses and organisations concerning support.

The sponsored walk across the bridge starts at noon this Saturday, May 2, and featurs a mixture of adults and children. A number of them will be dressed in various shades of the spectrum to match the colours in the Autism Rocks logo – as displayed by Liza’s daughter Alannah.
