Scott Glynn – fundraising update

Scott Glynn – fundraising update
Reading Time: 2 minutes

Recently we had a special guest visit to our Edinburgh showroom  – the infamous Scottish comedian Scott Glynn. He visited us to show off the t-shirts he had made for the “walk with Scott fundraising campaign” which Capital sponsored.

Scott had set a goal of raising £5,000 for 5 Scottish charities: Teenage Cancer Trust (Scotland), Cahonas Scotland, Erskine, Hearts & Balls and the Bill McLaren Foundation.

His personal challenge was to walk 56 miles in between playing 6 games of rugby over 2 days!

His charity walk began on the 4th May at Ross High RFC and then walk to Haddington RFC and play a game of rugby, then walk on to Dunbar RFC, play another game of rugby and finish off the day with a walk to North Berwick RFC.

The following day Scott walked to Preston Lodge RFC, play a game of rugby, then walk to Musselburgh RFC, play another game of rugby, and then walk to his last destination of Ross High RFC and play a final game of rugby. Quite a feat!

We recently caught up with Scott and this is what he had to say about his experience: –

“Everything is going brilliant …It was a great weekend .

A group of people from East Lothian who got together to do good for various Charities .  It was not just the charities that benefited, but also the people themselves.

They met new friends and old, they had a purpose to get up and do something and most of all, at the end they realised that they could achieve goals that they personally thought they never could .

It also brought the communities together as well .

At the moment we are sitting at over £17,000″.

If you’re interested in sponsoring Scott, please visit his Just Giving page. There is a bit more information about his challenge, as well as the reasons behind his chosen charities. The monies raised will be split equally between the 5 chosen charities.
