Abdul’s a trekkie trainer


SCOTTISH Grocers’ Federation president Abdul Majid is hitting his Bellshill Nisa store’s healthy living shelves as he gears up to shed a kilo or two before taking on a major physical challenge.
Abdul’s heading for America in October to complete a five day trek of the Grand Canyon as part of a team raising cash for Airdrie’s St Andrew’s Hospice.
He reckons he’ll need to be in tip top shape for a trip that will include camping under the Arizona stars and jumping into the waters of the Navajo Falls.
The hospice is a cause that’s very close to his heart, he’s been involved in earlier initiatives and he’s looking forward to the 2015 challenge in the US desert.

There’s also a fundraising evening on 27 March at Bellshill Bowling Club and raffle or auction items would be very welcome.
