A massive well done and thank you to Scott Smith and Angus McLeod who have dedicated the past year to undertaking numerous crazy challenge events in support of Beatson Cancer Charity!
Scott & Gus pledged to raise £10,000 to Beatson Cancer Charity Ambassador Francesca Mancini before she sadly passed away in September. They took on everything from the River Rat Race, the Mighty Deerstalker, the Edinburgh Marathon Relay Race to several Spartan Races throughout 2016 to hit their target. They also showed their support by taking part in Beatson Cancer Charity events, Challenge Arrochar in June & Off The Beatson Track in August – where they joined the 132 ‘Lymphoma Warriors’ who completed the 6.5 mile sponsored walk with Francesca leading the way!
They rounded off their fundraising with a charity night on 18th November in the Woodburn Miners Club in Dalkeith. Almost 300 friends and family attended the event and it was an incredible success with £3740.00 raised on the night.
We are delighted to say that Scott and Gus surpassed their target and raised an incredible £10,199!! They came in to the Beatson Café for a cheque presentation with May, Francesca’s mum last week - Thank you both so much for all of your amazing support!
