Hi there. We're Jim Leask & Ewan Anderson, and we're undertaking an 887 mile trek around the coastline of Shetland in aid of The Archie Foundation, SOFT and The Fire Fighters Charity. We've set a target of £22,000 to be raised, roughly representing £1 for every Shetland Resident.
We're aiming to walk the 887 miles of coastline of every inhabited island in Shetland. At the start of the summer we'll walk 113 miles around 7 of the smaller, more difficult to get to islands on our days off work, before tackling the remaining 774 miles and 6 islands over a 31 day period starting on the 24th June, averaging 25 miles per day over the 31 day period.
Jim and Ewan have been friends for 19 years after meeting at the Anderson High School. Jim works with the Bridges Project and lives in Hoswick with his wife, Katie and two sons, Stuart and Thomas and their miniature Daschund, Hali. Ewan works at the Shetland Recreational Trust and lives in Aith with his girlfriend Jenny and their collie Link.
Donations are made with the knowledge that we will make every possible effort to stay within the schedule that we have set. Should any unforeseen circumstances arise, we may be forced to make alterations to our plan.
