Johnston Carmichael accountants gear up for Kiltwalk 2018
A team of accountants from Johnston Carmichael’s Aberdeen office are gearing up to take part in their local Kiltwalk on Sunday 3 June 2018.
This year, the fourteen-strong group, along with friends and family, will be walking for a variety of charities including Aberdeen Maternity Hospital, the British Heart Foundation and Maggie’s.
The team includes seven walkers from the firm’s Aberdeen office, four from Inverurie, two from Edinburgh and one from Glasgow. The participants from Scotland’s capital and largest city are taking part as a commitment to completing all four Kiltwalks, covering 300 miles between them.
The Aberdeen Kiltwalkers will be taking on two different distances, the 14.1-mile Big Stroll, or the Mighty Stride, a marathon-distance of 26 miles.
Niall Farquharson, managing partner of Johnston Carmichael’s Aberdeen office, took part in the Mighty Stride last year and said: “It’s great to see so many of our North-East staff pulling on their walking boots and getting involved in this year’s Kiltwalk.
“It’s a fantastic event and we are very proud to see so many people across all of our offices taking part in their local walks.”
This year Sir Tom Hunter and The Hunter Foundation will be adding 40 per cent to all funds raised by teams in the Kiltwalk, up to a limit of £5,000.
Mr Farquharson added: “The team are walking for some extremely worthwhile causes that are close to their hearts, so we are hoping to raise a significant amount for each charity. I wish them the very best of luck!”
