A gardener from Montrose has raised around £400 by taking part in a challenge so mucky, you could call him ‘Nuts’!

David Pullar recently returned from London after taking part in the ‘Nuts Challenge’ a fundraising obstacle course in support of Hortaid by Perennial, the UK’s only charity which is dedicated to helping people working in horticulture.

David said: “It is one of the UK’s toughest military style assault courses through lots of mud and some extreme obstacles.

“I was the only representative from Scotland and was one of 60 gardeners who took part, many of whome are renowned influential gardening professionals.”

David is still fundraising and hopes to attract more support for this national cause. He said: “At the moment almost £12,000 has been raised which is a fantastic achievement. I have currently raised £400 through sponsors.

“However, it’s still not too late to donate at my David Pullar ‘justgiving’ page.

“I’m also keen to hear from other gardeners from across the country who may be keen to organise something similar here in Scotland.

“I can be reached by email at”
