THE chairman of the Loch Lomond Rescue Boat has raised more than £1,000 for the charity after taking part in the Kiltwalk.

Bobby Steele set off from Glasgow Green on Sunday, September 26 with the hopes of completing all 16.5 miles and crossing the finishing line at the Meadow Leisure Centre.

However, disaster struck at the 15-mile mark when he fell backwards down a hill and collided with a railway fence.

Managing another half mile, he soon headed for the first aid tent “looking like a question mark” due to a back injury.

Sharing the incident on social media, Bobby joked: “I think there was something in the Lucozade!”

Nonetheless, he received a finisher’s medal and raised a total of £1,150.17, which will help the Luss-based volunteer lifeboat continue its vital service.
