Comms team smashes fundraising target in challenge race

THE fundraising target was £500, but in the end some £1,300 was raised by a team of four from Paisley-based communications company, Connect, in an adventure race held in the Borders.

A sprained ankle and an unscheduled fall in a freezing river were also involved in the quartet’s participation in the Mighty Deerstalker 10km-long race at the weekend.

Benefitting from the fundraising efforts of designers Renny Hutchison, James Cargill and Scott Richmond, plus editor Jim Byers, was Macmillan Cancer Care.

Half of the event – which took place at Innerleithen – was held during the night.
