FG Burnett surpassed £5,000 charity target

aviemore 10k

Three FG Burnett employees tackled the last leg of their fundraising mission last weekend by competing in the Aviemore 10K.

This was the final hurdle of the year for FG Burnett employees, which led to the company surpassing its £5,000 fundraising target for Wooden Spoon, a UK charity that supports disadvantaged and disabled children through rugby.

With the picturesque Cairngorm Mountains in the background, David MacLeod, Christopher Yannaghas and Derek Richardson ran 10K across forest tracks, paths and roads in a bid to reach the target.

This follows a year of fundraising success for FG Burnett, with teams of employees collectively completing the Baker Hughes 10k in May and the Beast Race in September.

David MacLeod, director at FG Burnett, comments: “We had a great time at the Aviemore 10K this weekend, and were lucky enough to have good weather! It was challenging running a new course, but Christopher did brilliantly, knocking 6 minutes off his time achieved at the Baker Hughes 10K.

“It was a huge achievement for all three of us to take FG Burnett over the finish line and be part of surpassing £5,000 target for Wooden Spoon. Everyone has worked so hard throughout the year and this is a testament to our hard work.”

Angus MacCuish, managing director at FG Burnett, adds, “Supporting charities is extremely important to us all at FG Burnett, and we are delighted to have selected Wooden Spoon as out corporate charity of the year. This is an excellent charity and all our team members should be extremely proud of their fundraising efforts this year.”
