Feels like I'm walking on, walking on, broken glass ...


By Alistair Whitfield


A SET of brave souls have bared their soles to raise cash for a very good cause.

The group got together at the Bridge 45 in Lossiemouth for a 'glasswalk' in aid of the Scottish Cot Death Trust.

Lossie couple Claire and Ryan Edwards explained that Tuesday would have been their son Fraser's 25 birthday.

Long-time supporters of the cot death charity, they have organised a 'firewalk' before where participants stepped across heated coals.

However, they wanted to set a new challenge in Fraser's memory.

Claire said: "It was totally different. With a firewalk you have to go quickly, but this was the exact opposite. In order not to cut your feet you were advised to walk as slowly as possible. And it worked.

"It was a really happy evening. We had a great crowd of people in and a lot of supporters."

The youngest walker was Abbie McIntosh who is aged 14.

The eldest was Claire's father Iain Main who turned 70 two weeks before the walk.
