The team at XSite Braehead recently took part in Scotland’s mass participation walking event the Kiltwalk to raise funds for charity.
Colleagues donned their kilts and tartan regalia on Sunday 30th April in aid of St Vincent’s Hospice. The participants from the team at XSite Braehead raised £1,040. The proceeds will go towards helping the Renfrewshire-based charity provide people in need with end-of-life care, as well as supporting families.
Members of staff from the centre management team – Rosalind Gibson, Bruce Harley, Lynne Keenan, and Colette Muldoon – walked the equivalent of a half marathon across Glasgow, while Stephen Stronach went the extra mile(s) – walking the length of a full marathon.
Rosalind Gibson, Marketing Manager at XSite Braehead, said: ‘St Vincent’s plays a vital role in our local community. While the last few miles were tough it was well worth pushing through, knowing that our participation in the Kiltwalk was helping to raise money for the important work done by the charity.
“I’m very proud of my colleagues, and I would also like to thank everyone who kindly donated.”
Lesley Campbell, Community, Corporate & Events Fundraiser at St Vincent’s Hospice, said: “We are incredibly grateful to the team at XSite Braehead for their generous fundraising efforts.
“The team’s support highlights how vital donations are so that we can continue to help families in Renfrewshire and the surrounding areas.”
