Cupar father and daughter’s Ben Nevis challenge


A CUPAR man and his daughter are set to climb Ben Nevis in a charity challenge that hopes to both raise pounds and lose them!

Brian and Alice Fell hope to raise £1000 for Chest Heart and Stroke Scotland (CHSS) with the climb on Saturday, June 4.

But at the same time they hope the event will co-incide with Alice (26) losing an amazing 50lb in weight!

Brian – who volunteers at the CHSS shop in Cupar – said a number of factors had contributed to the pair deciding to undertake the challenge.

He said: “My mum died of a stroke when I was eight so we know just how important it is to raise money for a charity which supports people affected by chest, heart and stroke illness.

“Secondly, working in the shop has made me realise just how vital it is that people support their work.”

“We also have the added incentive that the event may also help us celebrate Alice losing 50lbs.

“She has already lost over 44lbs and we hope the prospect of the climb will give her the motivation to shed the last few pounds.”

Brian (61) added that training has already begun with walks in the local area including the Lomond Hills and Largo Law helpng to boost their fitness.

Anyone who would like to sponsor them can go online and donate at or drop into the CHSS shop in Bonnygate, Cupar.
