Cornhill Castle Team Raise Funds

17th of June, 2017 | Posted in Hotel News, People Email Article | Print Article

Members of the team at Cornhill Castle near Biggar, Lanarkshire have raised funds for charity by going over the top of one of Scotland’s most iconic landmarks and abseiling from the Forth Rail Bridge.

The girls – Lindsay Collins, Ruth Campbell, Lauren Coyle, Alannah Norbury and Nicola Browning – raised £1,600.00 for Chest, Heart & Stroke Scotland. The charity has been carefully selected by the Castle. One of their team members, Nicola suffered a stroke in 2011, when she was 34. Nicola also took part in the abseil with her colleagues standing beside her in support. This event is just the first in a series of events that the
hotel will be undertaking on behalf of the charity. Not to be outdone, some of the male members of the team will be doing a further abseil in October, and all staff currently donate 10% of their tips to the charity. Other events to be finalised include an afternoon tea and a tribute night in aid of the charity.
