Blue Flash Challenge to end at Old High Church

You are invited to a service at the Old High Church on Saturday 25 June at 11am to mark the end of the ‘Blue Flash Challenge’, in which a group of veteran members of the 4th Royal Tank Regiment will have trekked from Roybridge to Inverness over a 24 hour period, a distance just short of 60 miles, to raise money for Scotty’s Little Soldiers, a charity to support the children of service personnel killed in action.
