Police officers and colleagues from the High Court in Glasgow have raised more than £3,000 through a sponsored bike ride from Edinburgh to Glasgow.
The money was split between the Erskine Hospital and the Moira Jones Fund. Constable Alan Thompson said: ‘We had the idea of raising some money through a bike ride and the idea just grew as more people got involved.
‘We ended up with 12 cyclists and a mini bus for support for the trip. It took us around seven hours because the wind was in our faces the whole way, but it was worth it.
‘We want to make it an annual event. I have suggested twice round Millport for next year!’
The bike ride was organised by Sergeant David Callander. The initial plan was to donate to the Erskine fund but the conclusion of the Moira Jones murder trial in April and the fund created in her memory inspired the group to donate to that cause as well.
