Kenneth McDonald, Stuart Fullerton, Rory Stewart and Dale Cromar of Allander Dental Care team have so far raised £2,613 of their £5,000 target for the Teenage Cancer Trust (TCT).

The original date for the Five Ferries Cycle Challenge was June 6 – but has now been rescheduled to Saturday, July 4, because of Covid-19 restrictions on the boats.

The charity team posted on their justgiving site: “In November 2019 our dear friend Murray sadly passed away at the age of 22. Murray was one of a kind.

“He was hilarious, smart, caring and an incredibly brave young man who was so loved by all who met him. He is sorely missed by all his friends and family.

“The Teenage Cancer Trust was always close to Murray and his passion for it was demonstrated by the active role he played in the work they do. He was an inspirational ambassador for the organisation and spoke on their behalf in The Scottish Parliament at Holyrood in 2018, where he introduced ‘The Buddy System’ to educate and connect young people in a meaningful way to support them through their challenges.”

The five ferries challenge covers 54 miles and the route takes in a number of islands in the Firth of Clyde as well as parts of the mainland,
