Event: Loch Leven Walkathon 23/03/2014
Team: Andrew Macdonald, Jacquie Macdonald, Ross Dunbar, Bobby Harvey, Robyn Lowe, Mary Newman
Move over Lawrence of Arabia, step aside Bear Grylls - last weekend it was solicitors from Blair Cadell who felt the sun on their backs and the wind in their hair as they ventured into the wild for charity. On behalf of Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland the team took part in an 11k hike round Loch Leven in beautiful spring sunshine, raising well over £1000 (the donations are still coming in!) - more than doubling their initial target. A big congratulations to all involved.
Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland is dedicated to improving the health of those affected by chest heart and stroke illness. Every day 100,000 people in Scotland struggle to breathe due to chronic chest illness - every 22 minutes someone in Scotland will have a heart attack or stroke. CHSS supports people living with these conditions in Scotland through research, advice, support and action. Blair Cadell have strong links with the charity as Susan Masterson, one of our partners, acts for CHSS.
By all accounts Sunday's walkathon went without a hitch, a good pace was set and the chat was abundant. Everybody came back in full working order and some lovely photos were taken along the way which you can see on our facebook page by clicking this link.
