step by step...
In September the staff of Stòrlann undertook a 52-mile sponsored
walk to raise funds for the BETHESDA hospice in Stornoway. The team
walked from Stornoway to Tarbert in Harris. The plan was then to
walk from Uig to Portree in Skye but after around five miles it became
clear that the road was too dangerous. The team transferred over to
Braes and completed the same mileage there instead.
The aim of the walk was to allow remotely working staff to spend
time with their colleagues in order to build links within the team. This
was a valuable exercise given the mixture of sunny and not-so-sunny
days encountered. All concerned agreed that the sun was shining
especially brightly when the team finally reached Portree!
To date Stòrlann staff have raised around £7,000 for Bethesta and
there are still monies to be collected.
