A team of Scottish property agents are preparing to scale new heights to raise funds for the Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice.
The group from Cushman & Wakefield’s Glasgow and Edinburgh offices are cycling 55 miles round Arran and then climbing 2,866ft to the summit of the island’s highest peak Goat Fell… all in one day.
All of the funds raised will go towards the ‘Brick by Brick’ appeal to build a brand new purpose built Hospice in Bellahouston Park.
Starting their epic Scotland in Miniature challenge at 7.00 in the morning on Friday 14th of August, the group hope to finish the challenge is just over 12 hours. They are aiming to raise more than £10,000 for the charity.
Heading up the team will be Scottish Managing Director David Davidson, who hopes to use his expertise of completing challenges such as a 155 mile cycle as part of a London to Bruges challenge, to spur on less experienced members of the team.
He said: “I have been over to Arran to look at the routes and I am sure that with the right training and encouragement everyone will reach their goals. Some people are only doing the cycle, others just the climb but we have a core team of 12 people who are aiming to do both within the day.
“It will be hard work but as anyone who has ever visited the Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice will know it is for an absolutely terrific cause. They do an incredible and inspiring job not just working with those entering the final days of their lives but with their families and friends too.”
The money will go directly towards the cost of building the atrium of the new hospice, which will offer a warm welcome for visitors with seating and a fire where patients and their families can relax and spend time together.
