Scotia staff donned their walking boots and rucksacks to raise £1695 for the Cash for Kids project at Whiteleys Retreat, by Alloway.
13 members of staff from across the company climbed Ben Lomond on Saturday 11th August. Martin Smith, Scotia Director, and his team were accompanied by their four legged friends Fergus the Scotia Scottie and Shelby the Labrador. Thankfully the sun shone throughout the 6 hour hike and stunning views of the length of Loch Lomond and the Trossachs were enjoyed from the peak of the 974m Munro.
The money raised will help fund an outdoor play park in the grounds of Whiteley’s Retreat, a fantastic facility providing therapeutic short breaks for children, young people and their families affected by cancer and other life altering illnesses in the UK.
Families can create quality memories in the luxury cottages set in 30 acres of rolling Ayrshire countryside providing the perfect opportunity to relax and recuperate. The Retreat boasts a range of therapies including a sensory play barn, animal therapy and indoor holistic therapies, ensuring everyone is catered for.
