Construction firm raises more than £10K for charity
Team members from local construction firm, The JR Group, continuously put their best foot forward over 26 miles to raise money for The British Heart Foundation and Beatson Cancer Charity as part of The Kiltwalk.
The intrepid ramblers raised £10,650, with the Hunter Foundation adding an additional 50%, making a grand total of £15,975 – a 698.75% increase on their original target of £2,000.
The Kiltwalk, a mass participation walking event that has been raising funds for Scottish charities and projects since 2016, has raised £29 million for more than 2,600 charities.
Gary McGregor, Managing Director of The JR Group, said: “Our team is very enthusiastic about fundraising for charity, and I am proud of how much free time we dedicate to these kinds of events.
“There were a few blisters and sore muscles the following day, but the incredible amount raised, with the generous top up from the Hunter Foundation, makes it all worthwhile. We would like to thank all the team, family, friends, business suppliers, and partners for their incredibly generous donations.”
The JR Group employs around 200 staff and was founded in Govan in 1995. It started as a scaffolding business and is now one of the largest building and construction firms in Scotland. The business operates throughout Scotland and Northern England working on behalf of several of the UK’s leading housebuilders, registered social landlords and private clients.
