The challenges involves being sponsored to notch up a set number of miles during one month.

Keegan pedalled 150 miles during May, averaging around eight miles a day and travelling in and around his home village, as far afield as Littleferry and Strathsteven.

He had been hoping the money he raised would be ringfenced for the Alzheimer Dementia Resource Centre at Tain, but this has not proved possible.

The youngster, who is an Army Cadet and junior bowling champion, said he was thrilled to have reached the end of the fundraiser and was also delighted to have been presented with a medal marking his achievement from the charity.

His mum and dad Tracey and Ewen Sutherland, who both work at Golspie’s Seaforth House care home, said they were very proud of him. Golspie High School teacher Mark Evans sent his best wishes at the start of the challenge.
