Fundraising trio James Thomson, Stewart Gourlay and Barry Gunn clocked more miles than they bargained for on this year’s Appin Entertainments sponsored walk.

Raising money to provide events in and around the village, the lads took the route along the cycle path from Ballachulish Bridge to the Creagan Inn for this year’s challenge

‘According to Google maps that’s 16 miles but the data on my iPhone showed it was in fact 21 miles,’ said Appin Entertainments founder James.

At the time of writing the trio had raised £1,100 from their endeavour with more money expected to come in.

A very successful Burns Night in 2020 was the last event the team had put on before lockdown. James and his team are now looking forward to a resurgence in the very near future.

‘Hopefully we can get back to organising community events for Appin very soon,’ he added.

‘Once we get the green light we are looking at family barbecues, summer dances, quiz or karaoke nights food theme nights and, of course, our very popular Burns night in 2022.

James also thanked the Appin and Duror communities ‘for there amazing support to our group’.
