A TEAM of generous nurses from Kilwinning's Ayrshire College are aiming to raise as much funds as possible for an "amazing" local charity.

Six nurses from the college's campus here in North Ayrshire have two events lined up as they bid to raise cash for mental health charity Megan's Space.

Megan’s Space was launched in 2019 after former St Matthew's Academy pupil Megan Copeland, a young woman from Irvine with a bright future and personality, loved by those around her, made the tragic choice to take her own life.

The strong team of Carys Campbell, Sophie Bell, Robyn Brown, Toni Cross, Caroline Penders and Sean Coleman have arranged their first fundraising effort for Monday, October 9, where they will be taking to the pavements.

As this year marks the fourth since Megan's passing, they will be walking four miles from the college in Kilwinning to Saltcoats beach.

They are leaving Ayrshire College at 9.30am and following the route taken by the number 11 bus - and anyone who wishes to join them for all, or part, of the walk is more than welcome to do so.

The group will also have a donation bucket along with them - so make sure to have a look for any loose coins if you see them out and about!

The fundraising will then continue the following day, Tuesday, October 10, where the nursing team will be setting up stall at the college in Kilwinning.

Here they will be selling Megan's Space merchanidise and home baking, as well as having a tombola set up from 12pm, as they continue in their endeavours to raise as much money as possible as we mark World Mental Health Day.

Everyone is welcome to come along and support the group in their effort.

Donations can be made to any of the team, and these can be passed on directly or through the college.
