A ROSYTH football team are going to great heights to raise money – and awareness – for people with mental health difficulties.

Rosyth FC Sundays plan to scale Ben Nevis in aid of Andy’s Man Club and will play a charity match against Fort William tomorrow to boost their fundraising total.

Manager Kyle Paterson said they were keen to help after the recent spate of suicides which have affected West Fife.

“We are doing it mainly for wee Scott, one of our players, who is struggling at the moment as he just lost his best pal,” he explained. “What we are going to be doing is nothing in comparison to what these people are going through.

“I spoke to Andy’s Man Club and they are happy for us to do something so we are going to climb Ben Nevis and then Fort William are going to come and play us.

“Andy’s Man Club had 58 people go along recently which is brilliant. If they didn’t have that, that would be 58 people with nowhere to go for help. It is a silent killer.

“I think Ben Nevis will be a bit of a challenge – we are all doing it, players, siblings, whoever wants to do it. It is the more the merrier. It is going to be a difficult one but it is all in a good cause.

“The match against Fort William is quite personal to them as one of their guys was friendly with Connor Law. The boys are great guys and had no hesitation saying they would do it.”

The match kicks off at 4pm and the Just Giving link is https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/kyle-paterson-1?utm_term=jYbx6pWRA.
