A PENICUIK student has trekked through Cuba to help raise £72,000 for a local cancer centre.

Nicole Murray endured sweltering temperatures and challenging terrain to cover 90 miles in 10 days.

The 18-year-old, who lives in Harlaw Road, achieved a personal target of around £7000 and undertook the exhausting task as a tribute to her mother, Donna, who died in 2007.
