Eight amputees will ride around the Isle of Cumbrae on Sunday to raise awareness of charity and prove that there are no limits after limb loss.

It is all part of 'Finding Your Feet' charity's annual family day out on the Isle of Cumbrae to raise money for families affected by amputation or limb difference.

Joining fundraisers on a cycle around the island is a group of amputees the charity work with, determined to show that anything is possible in life after limb loss.

Some will be using tandem bikes for the 10km, whereas others will be completing the challenge solo. The cycle will be followed by entertainment and activities for the whole family at Garrison House between 12 and 3pm. The event, now in its third year, raises money and awareness for the work that the charity carries out across Scotland.

The cycle will be yet another example of the activities and events Finding Your Feet fund and run. Others include rock climbing, skiing, swimming and regular drop-in sessions where amputees can meet others who have been through similar experiences.

Dot, who found viral fame on Facebook last year after her prosthetic leg fell off as she was halfway up a wall at the charity’s climbing club, is excited to take on another new challenge.

The 68 year old said: “My advice is just try it! After rock climbing, I went on to do an abseil, then a zipline and now I’m cycling. I never thought I would do be able to do any of it, but I have.”

Elizabeth Yesil, another amputee taking on the 10km, is challenging herself for a reason.

“I cycled around Millport about thirty years ago with my kids. This month will mark one year since my leg was amputated, so I want to celebrate it by taking on this challenge. I’m so excited!”

Founder of the charity and quadruple amputee Corinne Hutton made history on Cumbrae when she cycled the fastest 10km ever travelled on a quadricycle. She’s delighted that more people are pushing themselves.

“What we do is all about giving our amputees the opportunity to live life to the full, and experience as much as possible. I’m inspired everyday by the the people we work with. I think they’ll do the cycle no bother, and will go round twice next year!”
