Tarry Ile Trekkers continue to support CLIC Sargent

A group of epic fundraisers from a bar in Inverness took part in the Tarry Ile Beauly Bike Ride to show their continued support for young cancer patients.

Tarry Ile Trekkers continue to support CLIC Sargent

The Tarry Ile Bar has been supporting CLIC Sargent since 2002 by taking part in the Great Wilderness Challenge at Poolewe on Ross-shire's stunning West Coast.

Known as the Tarry Ile Trekkers, the group of 30 set off from the North Kessock Village Hall and pedalled 25 miles around the beautiful Beauly Firth as part of their ongoing fundraising.

CLIC Sargent Area Fundraising Manager Peter Logie said: "These guys are epic fundraisers and have generated well over £100,000 for CLIC Sargent since they started supporting us, which is awesome.

"This wasn't the kindest of days, with strong headwinds, but that didn't deter them and when the going got tough, they thought of Joshua, who started them off. 

"Joshua, aged three, spent many months in Glasgow undergoing gruelling treatment for leukaemia in The Royal Hospital for Children with his mum Karla, 150 miles from his three sisters. He is now in remission."
