The Scottish Land & Estates team successfully completed the RSABI Great Glen Challenge last Friday. Andrew Midgley undertook the 34km mountain biking section, Tim Baynes kayaked 7km on Loch Oich, Drew Macfarlane-Slack walked 12km along with supporter Judy and two dogs in tow, and Donald Inch ran 17km to finish the event. The weather was rather ‘Scottish’ with everything from torrential rain to beautiful sunshine but the team retained their enthusiasm throughout. A huge thank you to all those who sponsored the team and supported them on the day.
RSABI is a great charity and the event has managed to raise almost £40,000 at the last count. The charity provides financial assistance, support and advice in confidence to those people who have worked in land based occupations and are suffering hardship. RSABI helps hundreds of people each year from backgrounds as diverse as farming, crofting, forestry, horticulture, fish-farming, gamekeeping and rural estate work who due to illness, disability, poverty or crisis find that they are unable to cope.
Congratulations to the winning team from RBS and well done to RSABI for organising such a friendly event which has raised so much money.
