RSABI are inviting teams of four competitors and a driver to take part in their popular, annual multi-sports team fundraising event to help raise funds in support of people in Scottish agriculture.
RSABI Invites Team Entries for the 2019 Great Glen Challenge Event
Running for an eighth year this August, RSABI Great Glen Challenge, sponsored
once again by full service law firm Ledingham Chalmers is now open for team
The popular event has raised over £300,000 to help people in Scottish
agriculture and has been sold out in recent years.
Teams of 4 people from rural businesses, industry organizations and groups of
agriculturally minded people, take on the annual multi-sports competition on
Friday 30th August, all looking to follow the fantastic fundraising success of the
event in previous years. RSABI is delighted to be supported once again by Royal
Bank of Scotland, route sponsor Rettie & Co, The Scottish Farmer and Bank of
Scotland, all of whom field a team.
Linda Tinson, head of rural, land and business from headline sponsor
Ledingham Chalmers commented, “It is so important to be able to give back to
the industry as a whole but specifically to those most in need. With that in
mind, we’re proud to be part of a team — and an event — that has not only
raised a huge amount of money, but also raised awareness for such a worthy
and necessary cause.”
RSABI, which has witnessed a surge in demand for its charitable services in
recent years, signs up some 25 teams to compete in what is established as a
unique, inclusive and exciting one-day Challenge. In 2018, one hundred
competitors from across Scotland biked, kayaked, walked and ran sections
totaling 46km along the Great Glen Way from Fort Augustus to the finish and
prize-giving at Neptune’s staircase by Fort William, raising £66,000 for this
worthy cause in the process.
This August looks set to be just as popular as ever, and with enquiries from new
teams already received, RSABI are excited to be looking for a new winner for
2019 to follow Begbies Traynor last year.
