Pagan Osborne Beat the Borders for CHAS

Colleagues from Pagan Osborne recently put blood, sweat and tears into a gruelling charity challenge.

The team of 11 people from the legal, property and financial company’s Fife offices took part in the Beat the Borders event for its nominated charity CHAS (Children’s Hospice Association Scotland).

The 12-hour event comprised of 40 mile cycle, an 18 mile hike and adventure challenges. It started in Melrose and looped through areas including Kelso and Roxburgh before ending back in Melrose. 

Four people did the entire challenge, with a further seven joining them for the hike.

Jennifer Lowry, HR Manager at Pagan Osborne and the company’s Make A Difference team champion, took part in the event. She said:

“For many of us, this was the first time we had ever done anything like this. There was blood, sweat and tears on the day but in the end we were all very proud of our achievement. It’s a great feeling to complete the challenge, but it’s even better knowing we did so for such a fantastic cause.”

The fundraising total currently sits at £1915 with those who took part still adding contributions to the total. All funds raised will go directly to CHAS to support the charity in the vital work it does providing hospice services for babies, children, young people and their families in Scotland.

Criona Knight, Corporate and Events Fundraiser at CHAS, said: 

“It was fantastic to have so many of the Pagan Osborne team taking part in our Beat the Borders event. It is a tough event and they all approached it with determination and smiles on their faces. We are extremely grateful for the money they raised in sponsorship for the event and I think we can definitely say they worked for their money. We’re looking forward to next year’s event and hope that some of the Pagan Osborne team will bring their grit and determination with them again.”

CHAS is Pagan Osborne’s nominated charity. The company regularly holds events such as bake sales, tuck shops and team lunches in Edinburgh and Fife to continue fundraising throughout the year.

The following people took part in the challenge:

Cycling and hiking – Sarah Thurston, Euan Glasgow, Steph Pratt and Ross Whittaker.

Hiking – Louise McLachlan, Jennifer Lowry, Michelle Hardie, Carly Thomson, Angela Robins, Sharon Bowman and Chris Duff.
