BARRY REACHES 500 MILES AT LINKS PARK!
During lockdown, Montrose Football Club Director Barry O’Neill decided to put the time he was saving (from not having to commute to work) to good use, and he set himself the challenge of walking 500 miles, in 80 days, raising funds for MCT in the process.
His original target of £500 soon changed to £1000, and today, he completed his challenge with a walk from his home in Inverkeilor to Links Park Stadium.
A (socially distanced) crowd, inclusive of Ross Thomson, was on hand to greet him on his arrival at Links Park, and Ross took the opportunity to have a chat with Barry about the challenge and his incredible fundraising efforts.
We are extremely grateful to Barry, and all that have donated towards the challenge - and the work of Montrose Community Trust. If you are able and willing to donate, please do so via the following link:
