“We chose CHSS because this is a charity that helps people we know have suffered, from close friends and family to work colleagues.”
David White, 42, and Joe Devlin, 43, have been friends and colleagues since they met as apprentices 26 years ago. They took on the challenge of walking the West Highland Way in just four days to raise funds for Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland – with the added bonus of ending the 96-mile trek by climbing Ben Nevis.
David says: “Joe and I have always worked together, and it was Joe’s brilliant idea to mark the occasion of knowing each other 25 years. He suggested we climb Ben Lomond or Nevis but then we agreed we needed a bigger challenge.”
Their hard work paid off big time as their employer, international spirits company the Edrington Group, promised to double match their total for the charity – raising well over £3,000 in total.
“We chose CHSS because this is a charity that helps people we know have suffered, from close friends and family to work colleagues. We also took advantage of the charity days we have from work,” adds Joe.
