AN abseil from the roof of Lossie's tallest building has raised £8000.

A total of 73 people supporting 14 different local groups lowered themselves down the side of Forty Four Queen Street .

The event in June was organised by Outfit Moray.

The outdoor adventure charity's fundraiser Karen Cosx said: "We knew it was going to be busy as we had closed entry a few days before, but we were blown away by the number of people joining us on the square to support their friends and family taking part.

“Being a small charity ourselves, we know just how hard it is to raise funds and, with 535 charities in Moray all fighting for the same pound, we are proud to be able help support our fellow good causes.

Last year’s event raised just over £4000 and we are absolutely delighted that this year’s total completely surpassed that."

"We are incredibly grateful to Jason and Jill Fletcher of Forty Four Queen Street, who were most accommodating and supportive of the event."

Supporters of CLAN raised over £2000. Enable Scotland raised over £1000 and Longmore Community Hall received just under £900.

Outfit Moray’s fundraisers were able to raise over £2235.

Eleanor Burch and Munro Newlands raised just over £800 between them to help provide a respite break for young people from deaf families next summer.
