Maureen Polson is a great friend of 500 miles. This year, she got together a 500 miles team for the Rob Roy Challenge – the flagship event for the Martin Currie Charitable Trust, which is one of 500 miles’ major supporters. The challenge is to walk and cycle 55 miles of the Rob Roy Way, individually or in relay. Maureen, together with Shona Gossart, provided support for the 500 miles team, made up of Jim Hiddleston as leader, Lesley Goodman, Raymond Trainer and Craig Beattie.
They made it through the rain, midges and punctures, to raise a triumphant £3,250 for the Martin Currie Charitable Trust. Maureen led the fundraising efforts by organising a large ceilidh and the team ran additional fundraising events including ‘swish nights’ (clothes swaps).
