Nine members of staff from Brakes Scotland have raised over £3,000 for their local hospice after completing the final section of the Great Glen Way.

Sales team employees Kelly Baxter, Kenneth Armstrong, Pamela Walker, Tyler Mackenzie, Donald Owens, Richard Love, Colin Morrison, Michelle Purcell and Steven Allan walked from Drumnadrochit to Inverness Castle on Thursday 14th March, a total of 29km. The team are from all over the Highlands and wanted to raise funds that would affect the wellbeing of their customers.

Michelle Purcell, Area Sales Manager at Brakes Scotland, based in Fort William said, “We battled high winds, steep ascents and heavy rain on our walk. But we also experienced beautiful views, lovely company and the knowledge that we were raising much needed funds for our local Hospice, which means so much to us and our customers”.

Donald Owens, Regional Sales Manager at Brakes Scotland added, “We chose Highland Hospice because they support people in our community at such a difficult time in their lives by offering expert care and support. Highland Hospice is such a special place; I am so proud of our team and would like to thank all of our customers and suppliers who supported us in raising £3,150”.

Lisa Long, Corporate Fundraiser at Highland Hospice said, “Every penny Brakes Scotland have raised will be used in the Highlands supporting those with a life shortening illness, and their families. We could not continue this important work without the support of our community, so thank you Brakes!”
