Cycling from Lismore to Oban – the long way
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.
