An Aberdeen police Inspector is preparing to take on three herculean tasks in just two days to raise thousands of pounds for two Alzheimer’s charities.

Along with 10 other teammates, Colin Feeley will kayak 66 miles from Fort William to Inverness, before cycling the 72 mile return journey, culminating with a climb up Britain’s highest peak – Ben Nevis.

The grueling challenge will take from the 16th to the 18th of next month.

Colin said: “At the moment some of us are blissfully unaware of just how challenging this will be, however as the training intensifies the reality is slowly setting in about what we are taking on. This will undeniably put our physical and mental strength to the test however we will be fortunate to be travelling through some of the most beautiful scenery in Scotland as well as having each other for support and motivation.

“The most important thing of all is that we are raising money for two incredibly worthy charities which do fantastic work for vulnerable people and families affected by Alzheimer’s disease. It has affected some of our families personally – we know how hard it can be.

“People who develop Alzheimer’s don’t have a choice in taking the horrendous journey the disease puts them on. This has made the decision to put ourselves on this particular journey an easy one to make.”
