Ali Nicol looking for ideas for his fundraising walk next year.

In 2014 Alistair and a team of fellow County fans walked the West Highland Way and raised over £9,000 towards the Ground Improvement Fund and the new cowshed at Station Park. 

This September Ali and his team got their walking boots on again and walked the Great Glen Way. Nairn Saint Ninian FC and the Nairn Youth Community Coaching both receiving £3,000 from the funds raised and another £3,200 went to Cancer Research. That's a pretty impressive fund-raising pedigree from the former County player and his hiking team mates. And now Ali is looking to 2016 and another fundraising epic.

Ali told the Gurn:

"I'm Looking for some ideas for my fundraising walk next year. Laura on the Nairn Rocks FB page has put a post up on her page looking for some suggestions to help raise some cash for community projects in Nairn. 

I'm looking at a few different walks and haven't ruled out doing the West Highland Way again.

Plan is to have a series of small fundraising events but require a project/ projects that will benefit from the fundraising efforts. 
Some suggestions so far have been

Food Banks
Improving play parks
Revitalising the BMX track
Rosebank Church
Beach changing huts

What do you think Nairn is missing out on, or is there something we already have that needs repaired or replaced?

I'm prepared to help out with all monies raised by the walk for next year together with Laura's ideas to combine to make a difference in Nairn.

I know Laura is planning to hold a meeting locally soon to discuss the proposals put forward but we do require  a specific project/projects to aspire towards.
Please get your thinking caps on folks!"  You can keep up to date with Ali via his facebook page or on Nairn Rocks.
