INTREPID care workers went mountain climbing to boost their funds back in 2005.

Staff from Elderslie’s Adams House dementia unit travelled to Ben Lomond for the sponsored adventure.

A group of 12 care workers and managers donned sturdy boots as they set out for the summit of one of Scotland’s best-known landmarks.

Among the team which reached new heights was eight-year-old Erin Wetherall, whose mum Patricia was chairwoman of the fundraising committee.

The youngster put in a good effort in the climb, which lasted more than six hours.

Patricia told The Gazette back in 2005: “My daughter had been really looking forward to the day and we all enjoyed ourselves a lot, although it was particularly hard work towards the end.”

Also in the crew were acting unit manager John McDaid and care workers Martin Lightbody and Nicola Halley.
