The Inverness Highland Games take place this Saturday (July 16) with a special relay to raise money for charity.
High Life Highland runs the event supported by the Inverness Highland Games Committee on behalf of The Highland Council’s City of Inverness and Area, Events and Festivals Working Group, funded by the Inverness Common Good Fund.
Charities taking part in the 4x100m race are mental health charity Mikeysline, The Highland Hospice, Poppy Scotland, and MFR’s Cash for Kids.
Games Chieftain and Provost of Inverness Cllr Glynis Sinclair said:
“This new addition of a charity relay event to the Inverness Highland Games is a great way for the local community to support local good causes while having fun and enjoyment.”
Also joining in the fun will be the world’s strongest brothers – Tom and Luke Stoltman – making a guest appearance marking their first public outing since Tom was crowned World’s Strongest Man for the second year running.
High Life Highland Chair Mark Tate said:
“We want the Inverness Highland Games to showcase our city and its people, and this platform gives us an amazing opportunity to do that.
“As part of that, we want to highlight the amazing work charities are doing in the area and it also provides a great fundraising opportunity.
“It’s our intention to make this an annual event to which any local charity can take part.”
There are still two lanes available in this years’ race and High Life Highland would welcome contact from individuals and charities who might want to get involved in the fun.
