Plumbline walks the West Highland way

Around 15 staff members from plumbers merchant Plumbline have walked the West Higland Way in Scotland for charity.

Plumbline walks the West Highland way

The challenging 96 mile walk took place over seven days in May through the Scottish West Highlands from Glasgow to Fort William.

Orginally conceived of as a team-building exercise, the walk turned into a fund-raising event for Rutherglen High School, a school in Glasgow for children with special educational and support needs.

Paul Sclater, regional director, Plumbline Scotland said: “The walk threw up major challenges, the weather throughout the week was dreadful and much of it was over difficult terrain.”

What made it extra special, he added, was that they were joined for a day by teachers and kids from the school who walked with them.

“We wanted to raise £20,000 and we are on course to do that. It will go a long way to making a real difference in the kids’ lives.”
