An Arran teenager plans to run round the island in a day to raise money for charity.

Andrew Bunting, who is 15 and in S4 at Arran High School, can often be seen running round Brodick and Lamlash. But his new challenge is to run round the island in a day, starting from Brodick then going clockwise around the island. He plan to start at 7am on Tuesday August 4 and complete the 56-mile run by the end of the day.

Andrew is undertaking the challenge to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support as they have been unable to get the same fundraising as they normally would due to lockdown.

If people would like to get involved in the run in some way, they can private message him on Facebook. The link to Andrew’s JustGiving page is also on his Facebook page or visit

‘If this gains a lot of support, I would like do something similar again,’ Andrew added.
