Members of Cardross Parish Church have been clocking up steps this month in a bid to raise funds for Christian Aid.

A total of 12 participants from the parish have been taking part in the challenge, set by the charity, to walk 300,000 steps in May.

They set a target of £500, but have already exceeded £2,000 as the last day arrives on Tuesday.

Rebecca MacLachlan, one of the walkers, said: “We’re absolutely on track to meet the 300,000 and some of us have already made it, but we’ll keep going.

“We want to raise awareness of injustice and poverty in the world.

“That’s what Christian Aid work to do, and to bring relief to other countries that are suffering from droughts, floods, famines and other unpleasant disasters.

“I think the Ukrainian disaster in the news maybe brought it to the forefront of people’s mind as well, but there’s always been a strong support for Christian Aid locally.”
