Douglas McCrea's Annual Charity Walk Raises Over £12,000!
We're delighted to reveal that Douglas' 14th Annual Charity Walk has raised over £12,000 for our charity partners; a record by a considerable distance!
At the beginning of August Douglas set out on his Annual Charity Walk where he undertook the Kintyre Way in order to raise funds for the Emma Cameron Foundation and the Glasgow Care Foundation.
Having originally planned to do the 141km walk, Douglas happened to strike up a conversation with one of the current custodians of the Kintyre Way, who kindly let him know that they had introduced a new, longer ending of the Kintyre Way which added on an extra days walk and took the official distance to 162km! Overall Douglas actually walked 106 miles/169km over 7 days, which meant he only managed to get lost for 7km of the walk!
If you would like to read about Douglas' progress, you can find his daily blog here which includes video updates and some great pictures - he admitted he didn't expect to cross paths with that snake!
A massive thank you to everyone who donated to support Douglas' efforts. It is massively appreciated and goes a long way in helping these two great causes.
Now for Douglas to get his hip replaced and start planning next years walk!
