A New Year normally brings new resolutions and new challenges and our fantastic staff from our Aberdeen office will be doing it in style by undertaking the challenge of a return trek along the Gordon Way in aid of Northsound Cash for Kids on the 24th January 2015.
This challenge involves a “trek” of 40 kilometres over 12 hours which is a significant challenge. Additionally our good old Scottish weather and winter conditions may bring their own difficulties for the team.
This trail will begin at 6am on the East side of Bennachie and head up and over the hill. After navigating across and then descending from the hill, the team will make their way through the forest trails. Their challenge is not finished at the end of the trail however as they must make their way back using a different route.
The challenge and safety of the team will be coordinated by Duncan Paterson of North East Mountaineering. Based in Aberdeen, Duncan has been delivering adventure activities for over 10 years and provides a range of training and safety services.
Our team were asked “Why are you doing this sponsored walk with Northsound Cash for Kids?”
Kevin Edrich – “Having children of my own has made me think of the thousands of children living in poverty in Aberdeen and I wanted to do something to help them”
Murray Spence – “It’s nice to make a difference to people’s lives”
Peter Major – “As a Grandfather of 4, I fully support the charitable work Cash for Kids do to help the children of Aberdeen and I wanted to do something too”
Colin Pirie – “It’s nice to help those less fortunate”
Jonathan Merchant – “The best way to start the year is by helping others”
