On Saturday 12th September, our team of 7 were delighted to complete the Five Ferries Challenge, raising £3,600 for our long standing charity partner, The Prince & Princes of Wales Hospice in Glasgow.
Our colleagues and friends joined the 52 mile challenge which incorporates 4 cycle sections and 5 ferry crossings in and around the beautiful scenery of North Kintyre and the Firth of Clyde.
This challenge was part of Little’s involvement with the 50/10 Club – a group of 50 Glasgow businesses each committed to raising £10,000 to build the atrium of the charity’s new hospice, scheduled to be built in Bellahouston Park in the next few years.
Our Five Ferries Challenge team, which included Operations Director Kenneth Good and Operations Manager Robert McKenna, set off from Ardrossan in the early morning, taking their first ferry across to Arran for a 14 mile cycle to the north west of the island. They continued to cycle and sail their way through the Mull of Kintyre, Tarbert, Loch Fyne, Portvadie, Kyles of Bute and Rothesay before taking their fifth and final ferry back to Wemyss Bay.
This strenuous route encompassed a range of challenging hills with the team racing to keep pace and catch all five ferries on time – so we were all delighted that the team completed the course and our charity fund moved closer to the 10k target.
With some way still to go, we would like to thank our clients for their generosity so far and hope that our future fundraising events will continue to assist us in reaching our goal.
