Join Push to raise funds for hospice

Have your say

The Great Pentlands Push, a new fundraising event launched by St Columba’s Hospice, will take place on September 22.

It is a cross country trek with a choice of 13, 18 and 25-mile routes.

The event, for teams of up to six people, begins and ends at The Hub area at Bavelaw Castle, and takes place over 12 hours, culminating in a celebratory meal.

Participants will also be offered massages on completion and during the event, with a medal and certificate to mark their achievement.

Funds raised will go towards the hospice’s appeal to rebuild its facilities on its site in Granton.

St Columba’s will also be holding its Water of Leith Walk on May 13 – see or call the number above.
