The Ayrshire Hospice gave a huge thank you to the Troon Ladies Hockey Club for their recent fundraising.

As a way to keep fit over the lock down period, 19 of the 1st and 2nd XI team players took part in a virtual fitness challenge which involved travelling from Troon to John o Groats by walking, running and cycling.

Each week their mileage was collated to see how far they had got. They did so well in the first couple of weeks that they decided to do a return journey back to Troon. A total of 636 miles was covered and an amazing £1800 was raised in sponsorship for the challenge.

A spokesperson for the Ayrshire Hospice said: “We hope you are all fully fit now to return to hockey when you can. Thanks again for your support.”
