This weekend’s Hillbilly Duathlon at Kirroughtree will be esepcially challenging for one Newton Stewart mum who is taking on the event solo.

Jude Murdoch will undergo the running and biking challenge to raise cash for Cameron Halsall, a former Mochrum man who suffered life-changing injuries in a car crash last August.

Cameron, a teacher in Montrose, is now ready to be released from Glasgow Southern General’s spinal injuries unit but needs a bit more rehabilitation to improve his wheelchair confidence.

So his friend Jude decided to start a fundraising campaign in a bid to take away some of the financial concern related to such requirements.

She said: “We don’t know what lies ahead for Cameron but I think we should dream big. There are options to investigate for housing, working, living and also rehabilitation. I have hopes for his rehabilitation.

“I really think with a bit of fundraising and love we can all help Cameron to reach his full potential, whatever that might be.”
