Lochaber piper Finlay Cameron played ‘Flo’er’s O’ the Forest’ for the large group of injured military veterans who paused at the Commando Memorial, Spean Bridge, last week on their fund raising journey from John O’ Groats to Land’s End.
The cycling event is being supported by VetRun180, a charity that takes physically and mentally injured veterans on challenging expeditions around the world, to re-invoke the sense of adventure and teamwork.
The trip involves a group of injured veterans, from the charity Pilgrim Bandits, and John Chant, with a group of firefighters, who will be cycling from John O’Groats to Lands End over 13 days to raise money and awareness for MND which John, a former firefighter himself, suffers from.
