TWO Ayrshire Weekly Press staff will this week take on Scotland’s highest peak in the name of charity.

Donna Barr, who is a Multimedia Consultant and Jacalyn Brown, who works as a Sales Executive, will climb Ben Nevis on Saturday, August 11 and they are trying to raise as much money as possible for Macmillan Cancer Support.

The pair have been training for weeks and have set a target of £500.

Donna said: “Cancer affects everyone at some point in their lives whether its yourself or someone you know so we wanted to raise money for the services that Macmillan provides.

“We have both taken up an interest in hillwalking this year so as well as raising money we have crossed something off our bucket list too.

“We have climbed Goatfell three times in the last few months to get some training in and have climbed in all sorts of weather conditions which our work colleagues find bizarre but we really enjoy it.”
