Highland Office Equipment local hero, Colin MacLeod has once again pulled on his fundraising legs! Following his epic adventures across France and beyond, Colin is now taking part in the Highland Cross on 17th June.
Colin said: “It is that time of year again where I put myself through the pain of a 20 mile run through the glens and a 30 mile bike ride into Beauly for the Highland Cross with friends Colin and Garry.”
“This is a fantastic event which has raised amazing amounts of money for local charities which are particularly close to all our hearts. So, please dig deep and help myself, Colin and Garry raise some much needed money for the local charities nominated this year. Shopmobility Highland, Merkinch Community Centre and Caberfeidh Horizons to name but a few. Please take the time to check out my JustGiving page. Remember every penny counts.”
