Band of Brothers walking West Highland Way in memory of brother who died from cancer

From The Press and Journal

A group of men in their 60s will be taking on the West Highland Way in memory of their friend and brother who died from cancer.

Stuart Fraser died last September at the age of 67 after a battle with prostate cancer. Now his brother Garry alongside 14 friends – whose ages add up to 1,000 – will be taking on the famous walking challenge in his memory.

Mr Fraser, 65, said: “There are people coming from Canada, Switzerland and Singapore to do this hike. They’re all Stuart’s closest friends. So, it’s all the Dundee guys getting back together to do the charity walk for Stuart.

“The charity was very good with Stuart when he wasn’t very well, he got great support from Prostate Cancer UK.”

The group has called themselves Stu’s Band of Brothers, as they are all brothers to Stuart either “through blood, or through friendship” Mr Fraser explained. They set a target of £30,000, and have so far raised almost £10,500 for the charity on their JustGiving Page.
