Fundraising: Banchory Beast
The Banchory Beast is an epic obstacle race over tough Scottish terrain. There are over 25 mega obstacles including giant water slides, icy loch water, thick mud and swamp crossings. This year, the OCA put a team together with Mairi Shaw of Aker Solutions, Alison Young of Wood, Aimee Clarke of the OCA and Richard Longmuir all taking part to raise money for a local charity – Kayleigh’s Wee Stars.
The Kayleigh’s Wee Stars charity was set up by Jonathan and Anna Cordiner who, after experiencing the loss of their child to a terminal illness wanted to support other families in similar situations. The charity provides financial support, which could be to help fund day trips, holidays or other special experiences. In most cases it allows parents to take important time off work to spend with their child without financial strain.
