Charity run for Davie

Davie Henderson and his daughter Michelle Moggach.

THE DAUGHTER of the late Shetland Folk Festival stalwart Davie Henderson is set to take part in a fundraising 10k run later this year in memory of her dad.

The Shetland community was sent into shock after the well-liked Henderson passed away suddenly at the age of 63 in January 2014.

Over two years later and the music man’s daughter Michelle Moggach is set to take part in the Great Scottish 10k Run alongside her husband in Glasgow on 2 October.

Her dad died as a result of a heart attack and Michelle will raise money for the British Heart Foundation.

“Losing dad at a young age was obviously devastating,” she said.

“I wanted to set myself a challenge in memory of dad whilst raising money to support the vital research that the British Heart Foundation carry out.”

Michelle admitted that her dad “would have laughed” if he knew she was running 10k.

“Until recently I couldn’t run to the end of my street without being breathless,” she said.

The fundraiser added that she would be “over the moon” if she managed to receive donations totalling £500.

Henderson, who was the longest serving folk festival committee member, was known across the globe as an ambassador for the isles’ music.
