HIAL Firefighters tackle the Strathpuffer!

HIAL Firefighters tackle the Strathpuffer!

Firefighters from Campbeltown and Islay Airports will be taking on the 24 hour mountain bike challenge, the Strathpuffer, on 23rd and 24th January 2016.

The four-strong team will be aiming to complete as many laps of the 11k course as possible during the gruelling 24 hour challenge.  The event has been named as one of the top ten mountain biking events in the world, so the team have been training hard to prepare for the harsh winter weather and the long hours of darkness.

They are raising money for the Anthony Nolan charity to support a colleague and other families affected by lymphoma, and so far have raised over £400.  If you’d like to support them, see their JustGiving page.
