Capital completes the Rob Roy Challenge 2018!

On Saturday 23rd June, Team Capital traded printers for precipices, and took part in the Rob Roy Challenge.

The team completed the Schiehallions Shadow element, which involved a 14 mile walk from Kenmore, and also a 56 mile cycle from Kenmore to West Loch Rannoch and back to Kenmore.

Capital Document Solutions’s team included Andy Wood, Mark Harvie and Gary Allan, who were raising money for HorseBack UK, a charity that works towards rehabilitating injured military men and women from across the UK through horsemanship.

The Challenge was incredibly tough. Our team showed some serious bravery and stamina for hours on end, battling over hills and also tough Scottish terrain.

Mark Harvie, Capital’s Corporate Sales Director and Rob Roy Challenger said:

“The Rob Roy Challenge is a well-organised event coordinated by Martin Currie staff and volunteers from the chosen charities. It was a fantastic day on Saturday and although it is a very challenging route, the support and encouragement everyone gives each other to complete the challenge makes it very enjoyable… And helps you get through the pain!”
