Yes campaigner Mark Coburn has today set off on a marathon cycle ride around Scotland in a fundraising effort for local Yes groups.
The appeal aims to raise £5350 for ten local yes groups to have ten campaign bases – incredibly the total has almost been reached after day one. However Mark has encouraged people to keep giving explaining that any excess will be donated to the Maryhill Foodbank.
Mark explained how he was inspired to carry out this gruelling challenge after reading of a mother who went to the foodbank after having not eaten for four days. He aims to complete the 500 mile trip by this coming Monday.
Mark recently completed an even longer journey when he cycled from Rome all the way back to Scotland raising thousands of pounds for the Yes campaign.
