A group of youngsters are preparing to cycle more than 3000 miles on exercise bikes in a bid to raise money for Afghan Heroes.
The Fraserburgh teenagers from the Air Training Corps are undertaking the 3000-mile epic challenge, the distance from the Buchan town to Camp Bastion in Afghanistan, to show their support for the troops.
Janette Binnie, who lost her son Sean in Afghanistan in 2009, will be joining the boys on their journey.
She is hoping that the charity cycle will help the next generation of troops realise how important it is to remember the fallen.
She said: "You hear a lot of people, and a lot of adults saying I want to do this, I want to do that, and it's great but for a group of young boys to come to me and say ‘we really want to do something; we want to show the boys on the front line that we appreciate them and at the same time do it for our Duke of Edinburgh Award’ - well that was phenomenal.
“Obviously my son was in the Army but to me it doesn't matter whether it's the Army, the Air Force or the Navy, they're all troops, and they all fight for our freedom."
