SPORTING HEROES HONOURED AT AWARDS EVENT
SUPER fit Ryan Procter is taking on a triple challenge to raise funds for Douglas Macmillan Hospice.
The 43 year old will be taking on a 1.5k swimathon and 25km bike ride and the Dougie Mac 5K one after another on Sunday 9th April.
Ryan has already raised £500 and hopes to raise more from the challenge, to thank the hospice for the care his mother, Brenda Procter received recently after she was diagnosed with a kidney tumour.
She sadly passed away on 22nd February, and Ryan has organised the event in her memory.
