With the memories of misery fading from the West Highland Way fund raiser, the team were discussing the next challenge when an opportunity came up to partner with British Heart Foundation  Scotland and take part in the Strathpuffer 24 hour endurance race – one of the most extreme cycling events in the world!

“When we found out about the BHF Scotland places in the Strathpuffer, it seemed an ideal match, especially as we have a friend who had a triple bypass at the age of just 28.”

The Strathpuffer started in 2005 and has become legendary. This year’s event takes place on 15/16 January, and a few team places are still available from the nation’s heart charity – for more information, contact Susan Furbank at BHF Scotland, on 0131 555 5891 or email   furbanks@bhf.org.uk.

Barbara Osborne, Head of Volunteer Fundraising at BHF Scotland, says: “We’re delighted that Monty and his team are competing in this fantastic event to help raise vital funds and awareness of our work. We all know someone who has been affected by heart disease, and it’s great to see that they’ve been inspired to support us in this way. But even if you’re not up for the challenge of the Strathpuffer, there are still many other ways you can support BHF Scotland, so please get in touch with us today.”
