The people of Nairn came out in force for the last community run in memory of much-loved local schoolboy Hamish Hey.

Around 1500 people took part in Sunday’s Run for Hamish event as the crowning moment of the campaign to create a new splash park in tribute to Hamish (8), who died of cancer more than two years ago.

Buildings were decorated with the Team Hamish rainbow emblem and many runners sported pants on their heads in a nod to Hamish’s own comical antics.

The Team Hamish effort has raised more than £150,000 so far.

After Sunday’s run Hamish’s mum, Susan Hey, said: “Someone said it was as if Hamish spread his love through the town and made one ginormous rainbow. I couldn’t have put it better myself.”
