Each and every one of our magnificent seven crossed the Kiltwalk finish line in Glasgow on Sunday (30th April) after trekking the 23.3 mile ‘Mighty Stride’ in aid of their individually chosen charities.
Sean McPolin, Matthew Bowater, Chris Keay, Hayley Henretty and Yasmin Sweeney of Primestaff as well as Kelly Morgan and Faye Grist of Direct Workforce were all delighted to complete the challenge in under 9 hours.
Encouraging each other from start to finish despite their incredibly sore feet, aching limbs and blisters, it was a show of true team spirit throughout.
More than 7,200 people took part in the annual event in Glasgow, which is the biggest ever Royal Bank of Scotland Kiltwalk to date. The event is on course to raise a staggering £1 million for charities across the country.
Event participation cost just £32 per person, paid by each participant; which contributes to event organisation and the Kiltwalk charity. The STV Children’s Appeal distributes it to projects helping children all over Scotland. Our team then set up additional sponsor pages for their own individual charities and so far, the team have collectively raised over £1,330.
Primestaff funding gives charities a boost
With Primestaff’s charity match-funding scheme, each team member is eligible to claim £100 on top of funds raised, taking the total up to an amazing £2,030!
You can still support their charities!
Sean’s chose to fund raise for the Beatson Hospital Cancer Charity, Matthew continued to raise money for STV Children’s Appeal, Hayley for The Star Project in Paisley, Yasmin for the British Lung Foundation, and both Kelly and Faye children’s cancer charity, Candlelighters. Our team members are still open to sponsorship, which can be via online donation via their sponsor page links listed.
Fantastic team work, well done to all and congratulations!
