A team from Capital Document Solutions is taking on a 23-mile challenge to help disadvantaged children.
Employees from the company’s Aberdeen branch, as well as managing director Tom Flockhart, are aiming to raise money for Cash for Kids.
Staff will travel to Bennachie, near Inverurie on Saturday, January 24 where they will be joined by Emma Kemp, charity manager at Cash for Kids.
Beginning at the Bennachie Centre, the Child Heroes team will walk the Gordon Way to Suie Car Park before returning to the centre. The hike is expected to take around 12 hours to complete including rest stops, while alternative routes will be available should there be adverse weather on the day.
Tom Flockhart, founder and managing director at Capital, said: “I’m sure the experience will be a challenging one but it’s a fantastic opportunity for everyone to come together outside of work and show what we can achieve together as a team.
“We’re delighted to be able to support Cash for Kids in this way and hopefully the money raised by the team will go some way towards supporting the charity continue its fine work.”
Emma Kemp, charity manager at Cash for Kids, said: “I’d like to thank everyone at Capital Document Solutions for their support which will allow us to help tackle youth poverty in the north-east of Scotland.”
