GET READY FOR THE SECOND ANNUAL SALMON RUN WITH THE SCOTTISH SALMON COMPANY
All money raised to be donated to The Sandpiper Trust
19 August 2014 – The Scottish Salmon Company is set to host its second annual Salmon Run, a team based event which will see staff from the company run, walk, cycle and row their way from the Outer Hebrides to Arran, with an additional stage in Edinburgh. This year the event will take place across six days from the 1st to the 6th of September and will raise money for The Sandpiper Trust.
The Salmon Run was conceived last year by Penny Hawdon, Environmental Project Co-ordinator, to bring staff together from across all the regions where The Scottish Salmon Company operates. Those taking part this year will complete one of 39 stages of the 350 mile journey. Currently 89employees are training hard for the event which begins in the Uists on Monday 1st September before travelling to the islands of Harris and Lewis. The event will also take in Torridon, Skye, Mull and Arran, then Loch Fyne before finishing in Edinburgh. The route reflects the different areas where The Scottish Salmon Company has operations across Scotland.
‘By bringing staff together to complete this long journey as one big team, we see the annual run as a great opportunity to get out and raise money for such an important cause. We are grateful for all the support we received from the local communities last year and look forward to what promises to be an action packed Salmon Run this year’ said Penny Hawdon, Environmental Project Co-ordinator.
‘As a company we are very much a part of the communities in which we live and work across Scotland, and the success of the Salmon Run shows the level of initiative by our staff to make a difference to the local communities where we operate. This is something we are particularly proud of at The Scottish Salmon Company. Well done to all involved’ said Craig Anderson, Managing Director of The Scottish Salmon Company.
All money raised from the event will go directly to the provision of defibrillators in the local areas through The Sandpiper Trust. The Scottish Salmon Company has set up an online donation page where the public can show their support for our runners. To donate please visit uk.virginmoneygiving.com/team/sscsalmonrun
