A GROUP of Mayfield brothers and sisters are pulling on their walking boots ahead of a charity trek in memory of their dad.

Kirsty (22), Ita (27), Stewart (26) and David (29) Inkster have pledged to trek 96 miles along The West Highland Way in September to raise funds for the Marie Curie Cancer Care and The Prince’s Trust charities.

The four-to-five day challenge is their way of paying tribute to Stewart, who died in March 2009 after being diaganosed with lung cancer.

The girls are hoping to raise funds for Marie Curie, which provided a hospital bed and nurses to care for Stewart at home, while their brothers intend to repay The Prince’s Trust for helping them start up their own businesess.
