AN Aberdeen charity is calling on local people to take part in a virtual fitness fundraiser.

Aberdeen Cyrenians are challenging teams to virtually travel from Pittodrie to 12 other Scottish Premiership stadiums and back home again throughout the summer.

The Home/Away challenge is 555 miles in total – and running until September.

Teams or individuals can sign up to take part and complete the challenge in a number of ways.

Bryony Shepherd, Community and Events Fundraiser said: “I think we’ve all missed playing and watching sport since lockdown, and our Home/Away challenge is designed to allow people to come together and feel part of a team again.”

So far, over £1000 has been raised as part of the challenge, and accompanying appeal.

Ms Shepherd said: “All sponsorship money raised will go directly towards funding our frontline service supporting people who are homeless, without a fixed address, in crisis or suffering with addiction and mental health challenges.”
