AN INCREDIBLE Kilbirnie woman has raised thousands of pounds for charity after walking more than 300 kilometres last month.

Kirsty Wark was inspired to walk 10km every day in April in a bid to raise awareness of, and funds for, Epilepsy Scotland.

It is a charity close to the 32-year-old's heart after her own daughter Sylvie was diagnosed with epilepsy when she was just seven days old.

Sylvie, who is now five weeks old, needs medication twice a day, and Kirsty described the time around her diagnosis as "extremely stressful and worrying".

Incredibly, Kirsty took on this challenge just five weeks postpartum, and with another child under two years old, but nothing was going to stop her.

She received support from the charity every step of the way - and there was 429,001 of them - and absolutely smashed her challenge.

In total, Kirsty covered a mammoth 316.55km, but it was worth all the pain and blisters as she raised an incredible £2,640 for Epilepsy Scotland.

She commented: "Thanks so much to everyone who walked with me, offered to walk with me, donated and sent messages of support. I am overwhelmed."

Kirsty's fundraising page is still open for anyone thinking of making a last minute donation.
