Hike: We did it!

18 June 2014

Maidens Cleugh Lrg

A six strong-team of busy working mums from the east coast laced up their walking boots and headed the West Highland Way on 14 June to take on the Caledonian Hike and raise money for Foundation Scotland.

The team of friends, called Maiden’s Cleugh (after the Pentlands walking trail!) met at the school gates and despite juggling busy lives with work and young children, signed up to trek 24 miles in 12 hours to raise money for local charities. 

Team Leader Cate Nelson-Shaw, who runs her own business in Edinburgh, said “We wanted to do something fun and adventurous for a good cause, and thought it’s now or never! We (Maddy Millar, Katherine Stevens, Suzanne Kennedy, Jo Petty and Samantha Spece) started training in September, and battled against pretty much all of the great Scottish elements, so felt quite well prepared going into the Hike!

“We had an awesome time on the day and are delighted to have raised over £2500 for Foundation Scotland”.

Event Manager Fraser Lennox said, “We want to congratulate Cate and Maiden’s Cleugh on their remarkable achievement in conquering the Caledonian Hike and in doing so raising an incredible amount of money for Foundation Scotland! They are a perfect example of ordinary people going that extra mile, to do something special for community groups and charities across Scotland.”

The Caledonian Hike begins at Glen Nevis and finishes at Glencoe Mountain Centre, taking in majestic views of Ben Nevis and Buachaille Etive Mor along the way.
