LEAP hits the heights for Macmillan Cancer Support
LEAP staff help raise massive amount of money for cancer charity
A 15-strong team including LEAP’s Stuart McGregor, executive director, and Jim Pettigrew, the charity’s project manager, has helped raise almost £180,000 (and counting) for Macmillan Cancer Support after reaching the peak of Mt Kilimanjaro in Tanzania.
The team – organised by Macmillan fundraisers Team McKeown – reached the summit on 16 October after several days climbing and getting used to the rarefied atmosphere.
Stuart said: “This experience will stay with me forever.
“It was a gruelling climb. The higher we went the worse it got as the air got thinner but it was a once in a lifetime event and one I wouldn’t have swapped for anything.
“Now though, I’ll be sticking to events such as walking the West Highland Way to help raise funds – that’s much more my sort of walk!”
