Team members from local construction firm, The JR Group, continuously put their best foot forward over 26 miles to raise money for The British Heart Foundation and Beatson Cancer Charity as part of The Kiltwalk.
The intrepid ramblers raised £10,650, with the Hunter Foundation adding an additional 50%, making a grand total of £15,975 – a 698.75% increase on their original target of £2,000.
The Kiltwalk, a mass participation walking event that has been raising funds for Scottish charities and projects since 2016, has raised £29 million for more than 2,600 charities.
Gary McGregor, Managing Director of The JR Group, said: “Our team is very enthusiastic about fundraising for charity, and I am proud of how much free time we dedicate to these kinds of events.
“There were a few blisters and sore muscles the following day, but the incredible amount raised, with the generous top up from the Hunter Foundation, makes it all worthwhile. We would like to thank all the team, family, friends, business suppliers, and partners for their incredibly generous donations.”
