They’ve already reached their initial target of raising £2100, and have upped it to £4000 in the hope of raising much more for the charity as the challenge goes on.

The team began the challenge at the start of the month and each day team members either cycle, walk or run for one hour, covering at least 2.1 miles on their journey until Saturday, March 20.

On that day, at 11am the team will kick off a relay race. Each participant will have a one hour slot during the day or night to complete their chosen exercise method, finishing at 8am on Sunday, March 21 – World Down Syndrome Day.

Billy Gauld (pictured), one of the participants, said: “We are not only aiming to raise money for an excellent cause but, most importantly, we are looking to raise awareness of Down’s Syndrome in Scotland.

"By carrying out a 21in21 day challenge we’re also ensuring our team at St Fergus Gas Terminal remains healthy in body and mind during these difficult times.”

The team have been sharing facts relating to Down’s Syndrome on social media after completing their challenges each day.

Billy added: “I’ve been finishing my challenge at a local monument or place of interest, sharing a little fact about each place.

"This allows me to share the justgiving link again and see somewhere that I’ve maybe not been able to visit in a while.”
