Nairn resident David Osborne told the Gurn:
"A few months ago I got a call from Dad who informed me that he has Prostate cancer which came as a huge shock to the family. Having lost my Uncle and my Granddad to cancer over the past few years I decided it was about time I got out there and raised some money for Cancer research. One of the things I am doing is a 121 mile cycle on August 13th from Perth to my Home in Nairn and considering I only started cycling when I got the news this is going to be a huge challenge but one I am relishing and hope to complete in one day. I have set up a just giving page to aid this https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/David-Osborne2016. I referee in the Forres & Nairn welfare league and I would like to thank the teams Nairn United, Uncle Bobs for their sponsorship also as well as the elgin teams that have contributed and everyone who has supported me so far it really is appreciated."
David, also a goalkeeping coach for Nairn County, continued: "Along with doing the cycle I have arranged to hold a coffee morning at Whinnieknowe gardens where I will be holding a raffle draw to aid in the fundraising with some great donations from some local companies including Macks diner, Lochloy Caravan park, Swansons, Chivas, Diageo, Landmark, Highland Delicatessen, Eilean Dubh Fine Foods, the Inside Scoop, Clachnacuddin F.C, Torvean golf club and if any other companies would like to donate then they can get in touch."
