Staff at Viewpoint Housing Association have raised £1,011 for Support in Mind Scotland by braving some stomach-churning surprises in a 'Bushtucker Trial'.

Viewpoint, the oldest housing association in Scotland, recently chose SiMS as their charity of the year for the next two years, and volunteers showed they have a big appetite for fundraising by taking on a range of unpalatable plates in the trial at St Raphael's care home in Edinburgh.

Cheered on by colleagues, residents and SiMS very own version of Ant & Dec (Colin and Iain), the magnificent seven munched their way through creepy crawlies and other unmentionables to complete the challenge.

Well done to Mary, Brian, Heidi, George, Fotis, Stella and Shirley for their efforts. Rather them than us!
