EPC Offshore Saddles up for Charity
17 March 2011Five members of staff from EPC Offshore in Aberdeen will take to the hills this summer in a bid to raise money for charity.
The team have signed up for the Martin Currie Rob Roy Challenge, a walking and cycling team building event spanning 55 miles of Scottish countryside to raise money for the NSPCC.
Starting out at Drymen, near Loch Lomond, they will walk through the Trossachs to Callander before switching to bikes for a gruelling 39 mile cycle to the banks of Loch Tay.
With more than £4,000 of sponsorship already under their belts, the team are keen to raise as much as possible for their chosen charity.
Company director Keith Wallace is among those taking part. He said: “The NSPCC is an extremely worthwhile charity and the work they carry out on behalf of children is exemplary. It is important for everyone to get involved with events such as the Rob Roy Challenge as they not only raises money for good causes but give us an opportunity to give something back to the local community.”
NSPCC is the UK’s leading children charity specialising in child protection and the prevention of cruelty to children.
The five members of staff taking part in the challenge are Keith Wallace, Peter Kirkbride, Mike Jeffries, Jim Strachan and Ryan Robbins.
The Rob Roy Challenge takes place on June 18. If you wish to sponsor the team, please visit www.epcoffshore.co.uk to make a donation.
