Three decades of charity fundraising were celebrated on Saturday as walkers crossed the Erskine Bridge.

The sponsored bridge crossing was first launched by Christian Aid in 1987, with many thousands of pounds being generated over the years.

Around 150 walkers took part in the latest event.

Amy Menzies, of Christian Aid, said: “There was a fantastic atmosphere and we were delighted to see so many people back to support the event again, as well as lots of new faces.

“We hope to raise over £10,000 to support Christian Aid’s programme in India and we are grateful to everyone who took part and all the volunteers who make it all happen.”

Saturday’s event was a stroll down memory lane for veteran fundraiser Kathleen Leitch.

She said: “I have been involved in the bridge cross since day one as my dad started the event back in the 1980s, when I was very young.

“I love seeing the same people come back year after year. There is a real sense of fellowship between us as we all do our bit for Christian Aid.”
