Graham + Sibbald are putting in the Caledonian miles

Graham+ Sibbald were pleased to sponsor team Virgin Knights in the recent RBS Caledonian Challenge 54 mile charity walk from Gairlochy in the Great Glen to Strathfillan (between Tyndrum and Crianlarich).

This challenging walk had to be completed in 24 hours and it required almost continuous walking. There were only four stops organised: Fort William; Kinlochleven; Glencoe and Inveroran and the Virgin Knights completed the course in 22.5 hrs.

The team representing Knight Property Group (‘Scotland’s reigning Commercial Developer of the Year’), raised a total of £13,000. This amount will be matched by the Scottish Community Foundation, thereby taking the total to £26,000.

SCF will distribute these funds to community groups throughout Scotland, which will help to enhance the lives of thousands of people by supporting much-needed community services.
