Comedian Susan Morrison donned the sparkly shoes that feature in her stage show as she urged people to take on a charity walk.

She was joined by the manger of The Stand in Edinburgh, Kenny O’Brien and bar manager Niven Easter, who followed Susan’s example by wearing some striking high-heeled shoes of their own.

The trio wore the shoes today to promote Macmillan’s Cancer Support Forth Road Bridge walk which will take place on May 8

Macmillan are hoping 100 people will walk across the bridge to raise money and mark the charity’s 100th birthday.

Comedian Susan, said: “The majority of people in Scotland have been affected by cancer, whether they have been diagnosed with it themselves or know someone who has been.

“Macmillan is there to support anyone who has been affected by the illness, so it’s great to be able to support the charity by wearing some sparkly shoes – and by getting Kenny and Niven to do the same.

“Hopefully the Forth Road Bridge walk will be a real success and raise money to help fund Macmillan’s vital work.”

Macmillan’s Edinburgh fundraising manager Pamela Williamson, added:  “The support Macmillan funds for people affected by cancer is essential and many people would struggle to cope without it, so we are very hopeful this walk will be a big success.”
