Mactaggart & Mickel Group runs for charity
Staff at Mactaggart & Mickel Group recently raised over £1,000 for charity by taking part in the UK’s biggest women-only running event, The Bupa Great Women’s 10k.
Joining over 10,000 women, Mactaggart & Mickel Group employees Linda McLean, Tracey Morrison, Rhona McGeoch and Lindsay McColl, took to the streets of Glasgow and sprinted for glory. Monies raised were donated to Hand on Heart, a charity which aims to prevent the deaths of young people who suffer sudden cardiac arrests, and provides schools with defibrillators and vital training to staff members.
Lindsay McColl commented: “The atmosphere of the 10k was amazing, the sound of drummers and pipers really helped us to stay motivated and power through until the end. We are all so thrilled that we finished and managed to do it for such a wonderful charity.”
Ed Monaghan, chief executive of Mactaggart & Mickel Group, said: “We are extremely proud of our team for raising such a large amount of money for Hand on Heart, a charity which has supported some of our employees and their families.”
