Duncan Walks West Highland Way for FMA UK
Duncan Henry is walking the West Highland Way to raise funds for FMA UK. He tells us I have chosen this charity as my own wife suffers from Fibromyalgia and I can see how debilitating it can be. I am hoping that the funds I raise can help towards supporting the sufferers of this horrible condition and also the many family and friends that are also affected.
I am doing this event along with my brother Andrew and my cousin Hugh. They are raising funds for their own charities but we will be supporting each other along the way.
