We are delighted that long time supporter Margaret Payne has chosen us along with NHS Charities, the Highland Health Board Endowment Fund and the RNLI for her Suilven Challenge.
You can support Margaret and her four chosen charities on her VirginMoneyGiving page.
Even though she’s staying safe at home, 90-year-old Margaret Payne is still on a mission to reach the peak of Suilven!
Over the next two months, she’ll be climbing her staircase a total of 282 times, covering the 2,398 ft it takes to ascend to the summit of this iconic Highland mountain. And she’s doing it all to raise funds for the NHS and Highland Hospice.
It’s been 76 years since Margaret first scaled Suilven with her sister - and she can’t wait to climb it again with this epic indoor trek! She said: “I have now lived in the Highlands for over 40 years and I would like to raise funds to support the NHS in particular at this difficult time”.
We're delighted to have Margaret's support, especially as her late husband James was such a fantastic ambassador for Highland Hospice. Their daughter Nicky recently travelled all the way from New Zealand for her father's memorial service, and has been at home ever since because of the lockdown - she'll be cheering on her mum all the way, and so will we!
