Cy­cling from Lis­more to Oban – the long way

The Oban Times - - DISTRICT NEWS -

Cy­clists Arthur Cross, Ian King and John Young ped­alled 90 miles in a day from Lis­more to Oban – the long way round via Ard­na­mur­chan – to fundraise for Hope Kitchen and Mary’s Meals.

The chal­lenge started at 7am on Fri­day Septem­ber 28 on Lis­more, be­fore the trio crossed to Ap­pin, then headed up to the Cor­ran Ferry, over to Stron­tian in Morvern and Kil­choan on the Ard­na­mur­chan Penin­sula, then sailed to Tober­mory on Mull, cy­cling down to Craignure to meet the Oban ferry, fin­ish­ing up in Hope Kitchen at 6pm – 90 miles and four ferry cross­ings later – for a wee ceilidh.

Lis­more crofter Arthur said: ‘Mary’s Meals feeds chil­dren on a daily ba­sis in many of the world's poor­est coun­tries. Hope Kitchen is based in Oban and its aim is the ad­vance­ment of ser­vices which pro­vide food, shel­ter and com­pan­ion­ship to vul­ner­a­ble and marginalised peo­ple.

All do­na­tions will be shared equally between the two char­i­ties.’ A Go Fund Me web­page called Ard­na­mur­chan For Hope and Mary’s has been set up for the cause.
