A LOVING daughter who ran 180 miles across the Scottish Highlands for a charity that supported her mum through cancer donated the thousands she raised last week.

Katie Hall, from Dundonald completed her amazing run from Inverness to Glasgow last month, raising £7,500 for Ayrshire Cancer Support taking on the Great Glen Way and the West Highland Way.

Her mammoth challenge gained a huge backing on social media as she smashed her initial target of £4,000.

Katie’s mum, Linda was treated for breast cancer in 2015 after she visited a mobile scanning unit.

Her mum, benefitted from the use of the charities volunteer drivers, who were able to take her appointments at the Beatson centre in Glasgow. Over six weeks she received treatment and after getting the all clear has been in remission for four years.

Laura Brown, Ayrshire Cancer Support, said: “We are delighted that Katie chose to support Ayrshire Cancer Support in recognition of the help we were able to offer her mum Linda when she was going through her cancer treatment. Katie’s challenge is one of the most difficult we have heard of as she ran both routes in only five days solo. ACS receives no NHS funding for the free services we provide to cancer patients and their families in Ayrshire and we rely on amazing people like Katie and her generous family and friends to fund our vital services.”
