A grieving Saltcoats dad is preparing to hike100 miles in memory of his teenage daughter who he lost to suicide.

Jenna Moriarty took her own life in 2013, leaving her family devastated.

Dad Kenny is aiming to hike the West Highland Way in just three days with pals Barry McCarthy and Steven Gibson.

The trio are raising money for The Jenna Moriarty Foundation, which funds counselling and mental health treatments for children and young people in need.

Kenny said: “In six years of fundraising I’ve cycled, I’ve climbed, I’ve ran and I’ve told Jenna’s story in the hopes of making a change.

"This year is a step up. This is a route that takes most people five to six days, we’re looking to cut that in half. The training has been tough both physically and mentally but the support we have had from friends and family has kept us going, we’ve been through nearly every town in North and East Ayrshire now and the response we’ve had from people we’ve met along the way is phenomenal.

"With some luck we’ll raise the money needed to get as many kids as possible the help they are desperate for.”
