Team story

[p][b]McCreas Fundraising is well underway with our nominated Charity Partner, Action for Children Scotland [/b][/p][p]It has been an extremely busy time outside office hours for many of us at McCreas, as we undergo preparation and training for a number of fundraising challenges to raise money for our chosen charity partner, [url=https://www.actionforchildren.org.uk/what-we-do/]Action for Children Scotland[/url]. [/p][p][b]FLYING FEVER PARAGLIDE UPDATE [/b]After a false start last year due to the Scottish weather, Managing Director, Douglas McCrea has unfortunately had two more recent failed attempts at 'Flying Fever Paragliding this year', when he ventured to Arran on 31st May - 1st June, to throw himself off a cliff. Due to bad weather conditions, much to his disappointment, he could not get airborne, however he will try again in July and we are all looking forward to this one! (Douglas doesn’t like heights!) [b]Watch the video [/b][url=https://www.facebook.com/mccreafs/videos/2097813600437819/][b]here[/b][/url][b] to discover his thoughts on the paraglide situation.[/b][/p][p]Douglas has recently completed the [b]Rob Roy Way Walk[/b] – one of the Scottish long-distance walks covering 84 miles running from Drymen to Pitlochry in 4.5 days. [/p][p]You can see how he did in his blog [url=http://www.mccreafs.co.uk/news/douglas-mccreas-rob-roy-blog/]here[/url].[/p][p][b]THREE PEAKS - THEY'VE DONE IT![/b] Our magnificent McCreas Mountaineers tackled Britain's three highest mountains for the Three Peaks Challenge, climbing 3,407 metres across Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Mount Snowdon. They completed this epic voyage for Action for Children Scotland in just 23 hours & 55 minutes![/p][p][b]OUR 2018 CHARITY EVENTS[/b][/p][p]On Friday 22nd June we held our most recent charity event - our Charity Race Night, at Hillhead Sports Club.
