Gym members in Inverness took part in a "liftathon" in aid of Mikeysline and a fundraiser for a former boxer's baby daughter.

Members, trainers and non-members took part in the event at Gym 300, lifting a combined total of more than 270,000kg during the one-hour time limit.

Spokesman Tom Ashmore said: "It was really good. It was a huge effort but it was worth it in the end."

He said they managed to raise £186.76 but there might be more to be collected which will be donated to both Mikeysline and the Raising For Baby B GoFundMe page.

The GoFundMe page was set up to help the daughter of 18-year-old Inverness boxer Nicola Rattray who was found dead at home earlier this month.

It was launched by Alaina Macleod in aid of the toddler, Breigha, with an initial target of £100. More than £5600 has been raised so far.
