Local man’s marathon effort for Victoria Hospital

Local man Kris Western will be putting on his running shoes this Sunday for the Edinburgh Marathon – and he’ll be running in aid of Rothesay’s Victoria Hospital.

Kris, who has been training for the last 23 weeks chose the local hospital as it benefits everyone, and seemed like as good a cause as any to support. Money raised will go directly to the hospital’s equipment fund.

As of Monday, Kris has raised £676 for this very worthwhile cause, but is still aiming to reach his target of £800.
