Reaching new heights for GESH charity

Open Today

09:00 - 21:00

A team from Glasgow Fort laced up their hiking boots to climb Perthshire’s Ben Ledi mountain this weekend (Sunday 9th September) in a bid to raise £3,000 for a local charity.
 

The group of 70 took on the 879m hike to raise money for Greater Easterhouse Supporting Hands (GESH), a community centre that provides training, social and recreational services to young people and adults with physical disabilities and learning difficulties.

 

The challenge was part of an annual fundraising initiative organised by the centre team at Glasgow Fort, and involved staff from a range of retailers including Boots, Nando’s, New Look, Wagamama, River Island, Argos, Antler and Marks & Spencer.

 

Maureen Ferrie, founder and centre manager at GESH, said: “I can’t thank the Glasgow Fort team enough for their support. We are a self-funded community charity that relies on the generosity of others to keep our doors open.

 

“Thanks to the funding we have received, we are now able to continue our renovations to the centre and welcome the 600 people that come through our doors every week. It’s thanks to those like the team at Glasgow Fort that we’re able to provide continued support for those that need it.”

  

Phil Goodman, centre director, said: “The weather was typically Scottish but it was great to see the team make it to the top with smiles still on their faces.  We’re delighted to have raised £3,000 so far for what is a great charity and really important to our local community, helping hundreds of families across Glasgow.”

 

If you would like to support the team and make a donation, please visit the main reception at Glasgow Fort.
