STAFF from the Penta Hotel in Inverness raised awareness of World Water Day by completing long-distance walk earlier today.

Five members of staff from the Inverness branch walked the 12km from Loch Ness to their hotel in Academy Street to collectively walk more than 50km which some people have to travel every day for fresh water.

Penta Hotels around the country are completing these 50km walks and wearing blue shoelaces to promote awareness of the day.

World Water Day is an annual UN observance day which started in 1993 to highlight the importance of fresh water.

As one in nine people around the world do not have access to fresh water, this day is used to campaign for the sustainable management of fresh water resources.
