C+T team complete Great Pentlands Push challenge

A team of intrepid plodders from Chiene + Tait has completed the Great Pentlands Push challenge and in the process raised vital funds for the work of St Columba’s Hospice.

The team, called Between a Walk and a Hard Pace, trekked over 18 miles through the Pentland Hills in Edinburgh on Saturday 21st September.

St Columba’s Hospice provides palliative care for patients, as well as support for their loved ones free of charge, with compassion, honesty and integrity. St Columba’s Hospice also has a huge commitment to educating specialist and non-specialist doctors, nurses, healthcare professionals and carers from across Scotland and beyond.

Their aim is to improve the lives of people whose illness cannot be cured. They help people to live as actively as possible after diagnosis to the end of their lives, however long that may be. The highest value is put on respect, choice and empowerment.

Since it was established in 1977, the organisation has provided specialist care to over 1,000 people and their families each year. The Hospice is now embarking on its biggest project since it first opened its doors – a complete rebuild of its facilities to bring 21st century palliative care to all who need it. All the funds raised from teams that took part in the Great Pentlands Push went directly to the rebuild.
