Two pals from Burn­side hoped to be on top of the world af­ter over­com­ing drug and drink ad­dic­tion.

Davie Main and John Ferns, vol­un­teers at the Cal­ton Ath­letic Re­cov­ery Group in Glas­gow, de­cided to sign up to the chal­lenge of a life­time by trekking to Ever­est base Camp in Nepal. The duo are sue to com­plete the chal­lenge in April 2016.

It was a far cry from their low­est ebb, with John say­ing he would have strug­gled get­ting up Castlemilk Road be­fore he got clean.

Also on the front, James Kelly MSP joined thou­sands across the area in tak­ing part in the ice bucket chal­lenge.
