Preparations for the Rob Roy Challenge charity evening in the Glasgow Piping Centre have been finalised and Team Spence and guests are looking forward to an evening of live entertainment from their fantastic resident band Run-GMP and special guest band Big Tuna. The night itself, organised by Gillian MacDonald and Sophie Slater of Spence & Partners, aims to raise funds to support their colleagues participating in the Rob Roy Challenge, one of Scotland’s most famous and difficult charity events.
The Rob Roy Challenge is hosted by Martin Currie Charitable Foundation (MCCF) which is a registered charity (SC037106) run by the staff of Martin Currie Investment Management. MCCF selects the good causes to benefit from the firm’s charity event. This year the beneficiaries of the Challenge will be Alzheimer Scotland, Over the Wall and WaterAid, who will collectively share at least 75% of all monies raised. The remainder will be awarded by the Martin Currie Charitable Foundation through smaller donations to a range of equally good causes.
The team competing in the challenge are; Marian Elliot, Scott Cameron, Mike Selby, Fiona McKinnon, Chris Roberts and Greig McGuinness, all of whom are really looking forward to taking part and who have been training hard over the last few weeks.
All proceeds raised from the event will be donated directly to the Martin Currie Charitable Foundation.
