Five friends from the Fylde coast are set to paddle board across the width of Scotland this weekend in a bid to raise £10,000 for the Ben Trend Get Involved Foundation.

Andrew Hurst, Joseph Thompson, Wayne Nicholson, Daniel Moore and Carl Wise will cross the Caledonian Canal from Fort William to Inverness to complete the 60 mile challenge.

The foundation was set up in memory of former Arnold pupil Ben who died on holiday in South Africa in 2010. To donate, go to www.justgiving.com/fundraising/joseph-thompson5
