Scottish Water Team Raise Hospice Funds Through Cycle image

Thanks so much to the 23 Scottish Water employees who have just finished their fourth annual 500-mile cycle around the Highlands to raise funds for both us and Water Aid.

In 48 hours the team went from Caley Stadium in Inverness, taking in Laird, Helmsdale, Durness, Achmelvich, Ullapool and Applecross before heading back to Inverness via Muir of Ord.

The group cycled during the day and night, with at least two cyclists at a time splitting the route into relay sections of approximately 15 miles. Each rider completed at least four sections of the challenge.

Over the past 4 years Scottish Water has raised £15,000 for charity. This year they expect to raise around £3,000 which will be split between us and Water Aid.

Networks Analyst Bryan Barbour said, "As well as being a physical challenge, the planning and logistics take a lot of work as well - from working out the best routes and relay legs, to food stops and support vehicles, so it is always a relief when it all comes together."

"We had staff from Skye, Fort William, Inverness, Elgin and Glasgow taking part, so it's also a great way for people across our organisation to get to know each other and work together as a team for what are two really worthwhile causes."
