Last year we told the story of Stephen, Dillon and Mikey three intrepid fundraisers who decided to physically challenge themselves.
Their challenge was aptly named; “The West Highland Way 100”. Not only did it include completing the 100 miles of the famous West Highland Way, ascending a total of 15,000 feet, but carrying 35lb in weight too. They started from the Erskine Glasgow Home early one morning and finished, a punishing, 36 hours later in Fort William, having been pushed, not only physically, but mentally too.
They overcame the difficult terrain to raise the magnificent total, including Gift Aid, of £3486.75 which they officially handed over to Erskine at the Erskine Glasgow Home.
Erskine’s Head of Fundraising & Communications Sara Bannerman said: “We would like to thank Stephen, Dillon and Mikey for undertaking this extremely challenging event in aid of Erskine and for the amazing amount of money they raised. Unwavering support such as this helps us to keep our Veterans and their spouses safe, happy and well and we are very grateful”.
