Friends take the plunge for char­ity

The Oban Times - - Front Page -

TWO FRIENDS will raise money for char­ity by swim­ming from Mull to Oban this Satur­day.

Gemma Ste­wart and Gill Spink will take the plunge on be­half of the Roses Char­i­ta­ble Trust, which each year takes groups of young peo­ple from dis­ad­van­taged ar­eas on res­i­den­tial breaks.

Gemma, who hopes her swim will raise aware­ness of the char­ity, said: ‘It of­fers young peo­ple amaz­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties for ad­ven­tures and chal­lenges, that they oth­er­wise wouldn’t be able to ac­cess.’
