Who better to have on your side in a fundraising "battle" than a member of the British Army?

Meghane Griffiths, (23), from Inverness is an ammunition technician prepared to leave her comfort zone and swap the parade or battleground for the catwalk to help Highland Hospice, a charity that means so much to her and her family.

She explained: "I’m taking part in Catwalk for a Cause in memory of my grandad Stan Mosely and my mum Linda.

"My grandad was cared for in the hospice and then only 18 months later my mum was too.

"When she died of bowel cancer, the hospice put everything in place to respect her wishes and to ensure I was supported in every way. I was only 11 when she died.

"Mum’s name is on the memory tree in the reception of the hospice and as a family we will do all we can to support the Highland Hospice."

Meghane is sponsored by Inverness hair salon The Head Gardener whose owner Alison McRitchie is her "Auntie Ali", her late mum's sister.

Alison said: "Meghane is someone who does not like being the centre of attention, but she is still prepared to step up to help the hospice.

"She was due to take part in last year's Catwalk for a Cause event, but she had to drop out to go abroad to serve her country."
