The fundraiser, who is from Aberdeen, said: “I really enjoyed doing the Kiltwalk 2019 and I’m very pleased with the amount of money we raised in sponsorship for Talking Books.

“Books – whether in audio, braille or large print – are hugely valued by people with sight loss, it’s a lifeline, a way of keeping in touch with what’s happening in the outside world.”
