New Gorbals Harriers Raise Over £4300 Jun 26, 2016

On Sunday the 29th of May 2016, the New Gorbals Harriers team took on the Edinburgh Half Marathon in an effort to raise money for two worthy causes. Donations were taken for both The Brain Tumour Charity and Breast Cancer Care, two charities close to the heart of our staff.

A few months ago, New Gorbals’ Head of Maintenance Michael Houghton sadly passed away. Since then, we have been working hard to make sure that Michael gets the tribute he deserves. Funds have been raised for the Brain Tumour Charity in his memory. Donations are also being taken for Breast Cancer Care, as we continue to support our colleagues who have been affected by the disease.

The many generous donations have come to over £4300 so far, with contributions still being received. We would like to thank the colleagues that put so much effort into training for and completing the race, and to everyone who has donated so far.
