Property company tackles the Caledonian Challenge to help vulnerable children

09 March 2016

HopScotch, a children's charity providing respite breaks for disadvantaged children living in Scotland, has been chosen as Coulters Property’s charity partner. And the company has entered teams of employees in the Caledonian Challenge this June to raise much needed funds for the charity.

Mark Coulter, Managing Director, commented, “As someone who has been involved with endurance events I know that this challenge is one of the hardest of them all. It is a real test of mental toughness and attitude, and these are things that we pride ourselves on at Coulters. I am sure it’s going to be immense. What will drive us forward is our relationship with HopScotch and knowing the money will make a real difference to disadvantaged children. We encourage other companies to take part in support of their chosen charities. A moment of pain is worth it!”

Since the first Challenge back in 1996, the majority of the 18,000 participants have come from companies taking advantage of team building, charitable giving, staff incentives, health and fitness, as well as social and networking benefits. To celebrate 20 years of the Challenge, Bond Places are now available for charities to raise funds directly for their own causes.

Alison Bass from HopScotch added, “We were delighted to be chosen as Coulters Property’s charity partner, which has helped raise awareness of our work. The funds raised on the Caledonian Challenge will enable a group of vulnerable children to have a respite break at Ardvullin this year, our centre in Ardgour near Glencoe.”

 The Caledonian Challenge weekend on 11th/12th June this year, offers participants two distances, both taking in some of the UK's most iconic scenery: THE 54 is the ultimate physical and mental endurance test - 54 miles in 24 hours over rugged terrain; starting on the Great Glen Way, following the West Highland Way south, finishing at Strathfillan near Tyndrum; THE 24 is no walk in the park, tough but achievable - 24 miles in 12 hours; starting in Glen Nevis, following the West Highland Way south, finishing in stunning Glencoe. Whether teams choose to take on THE 54 or THE 24 it’ll be harder than they think but more rewarding than they could imagine!

Online applications remain open for Bond Places via: www.caledonianchallenge.com
