More than 100 people walked 5km along Prestwick promenade to support people living with a devastating brain tumour diagnosis. 

The fundraising event was the second year of the Twilight Walk which saw supporters from across Ayrshire take to the waterfront in aid of The Brain Tumour Charity. 

The walk was part of the nationwide September and October campaign by The Brain Tumour Charity to raise awareness and vital funds into research for treatments for this devastating disease. 

Living with a brain tumour herself, 34-year-old Heather Dearie helped organise the walk.

Heather along with volunteers across South Ayrshire were determined to host the walk to honour the late Viv McBeth, who was a community fundraiser for the charity for several years before she died from a brain tumour in 2017. 

Heather said: “Viv always wanted a Twilight Walk in Ayrshire, so for me personally it’s a way of honouring her memory and thanking her for everything that she did for me and so many others.

“This year’s Twilight Walk was another success with over 100 people turning out on the day.

“Despite the rainy start the weather brightened up in time for the walk to start and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves.

“We even had some people wander in off the street to ask what was going on who ended up walking too.”

The walk raised nearly £4,000 for the charity.
