A BRAVE fundraiser is to take on the ultimate challenge of abseiling almost 200ft from the Forth Rail Bridge, in aid of war heroes.
Heather Sinclair, 31, was inspired to do something to support Erskine after picking up a leaflet about the veterans’ charity.
She admitted to being motivated by the work it does to help ex-service men and women and decided to put her own tip-top fitness to the test.
Tomorrow Heather, right, will join other supporters of Erskine to abseil off the Edinburgh bridge in a bid to raise £500.
Heather said: “The inspiration for the abseil came one day when I inadvertently picked up a leaflet about Erskine.
“I was really struggling at times to motivate myself to get along to my local gym at David Lloyd, and if I did get there, it was difficult to put in a shift.
“I then saw numerous stories in the media about injured men and woman from the armed forces who face a huge battle to get mobile after the loss of a limb.
“I know how hard it can be to get in shape with absolutely no injury so I cannot imagine the dedication it must take when people are saddled with devastating injuries.
“I want to raise £500 for Erskine, and hope everyone will get behind me to support this fantastic cause.”
John Fyfe, Erskine Fundraiser, said: “We are delighted that Heather is joining Erskine supporters across Scotland in taking on The Ultimate Abseil.
“She is very courageous.”
