A stroke survivor from Aberdeen who requires the use of a mobility scooter will take on a 10k cycling challenge to raise funds for charity.
David Hartley suffered a life-altering stroke in 1997 at the age of 42.
Now the 63-year-old is taking up the tandem challenge to raise money for Chest, Heart and Stroke Scotland (CHSS).
After the stroke, David suffered from issues with communication and mobility, but has still completed a number of charity challenges, including an abseil from the Forth Rail Bridge.
David said: “I know so well how life-changing surviving a stroke is and how important the vital services and support that CHSS provide across Scotland and the local Aberdeen area are.
“It has been a pleasure to work with the amazing service delivery team over the years including Gillian Harold, the rehabilitation co-ordinator.”
Gillian said: “We are delighted that David is taking on this incredible challenge to support CHSS and we want to say a huge big thank-you to him.
“He does so much for us through both his volunteering and fundraising efforts.”
David will take up the challenge at the Garioch Sports Centre in Inverurie on August 10 using a custom-built, tandem tricycle.
He has already raised £450 towards a target of £750.
