We are delighted to announce that our team, ‘The Star Trekkers’, completed the Caledonian Challenge by walking 54 miles in 23 hours and 6 minutes along the famous West Highland Way on the 15th/16th June. Their team comprised, Heather Gaskin, Jamie Simpson, Alix Reid, Callum McDonald and Marie Bambury, ably supported by Katrina Beaton and Anne Littlejohn.
The ‘Star Trekkers’ team are back in, hobbling around the office, having only taken one day off to recover – showing their dedication not only to the cause but also to the firm.
The team have successfully raised in excess of £4,000 and the proceeds will go towards Foundation Scotland, a charity committed to strengthening the UK's most isolated communities throughout Scotland.
Keith Allan, Managing Partner said, “I’m actually feeling rather guilty as it was me who originally forwarded the email on about taking part in the challenge and then sat back! That aside, we are extremely proud of those that took part and their fundraising efforts have really paid off. I think it might take a bit of convincing for us to get a team for 2014 as it’s definitely no walk in the park.”
More details can be found on the team’s web-page at www.caledonianchallenge.com/teams/RAEBURNCHRISTIECLARKWALLACE where donations to support the charities can still be made.
