Stirling Branch’s Andy Douglas will be heading to the Pyrenees as part of a group of 16 with three from Scotland to raise money for UNISON’s ‘There For You’ charity. They will be covering 40km in three days in May 2017. You can sponsor Andy on this form.
Andy reports: “The registration fee is £295 and we are expected to raise £1,600.00 through sponsorship. Last year the charity challenge raise over £23,000 and we would hope to equal that this year. The charity gives out around £500,000 per year in grants and assistance to our members and their dependants.
“This assistance can be for saving people losing their homes, getting members out of violent situations, illness, loss of earnings, school clothing grants, heating grants, recuperating from illness and many other ways of assisting vulnerable members and their families.
“This can only be done through donations, charity events and our own lottery, so you may appreciate the work involved in raising funds. Training going well and climbed Dumyat on Saturday as part of this, maybe Ben Nevis next!”
