RMSpumptools heads to the hills for charity

Since its inception in 1996 the Caledonian Challenge has become one of the biggest events in the charity sports calendar. More than 15,000 people have taken part and helped to raise a staggering £12 million for charity.

This year, two teams of six from RMSpumptools will be taking the challenge, which takes place over the weekend of 15 and 16 June and involves walking 54 miles over tricky terrain in the Scottish Highlands in just 24 hours.

The teams will include RMS staff from both their Yorkshire and Aberdeenshire sites. Taking part will be managing director Stan Foster-Rooke, who commented:

“We are all very much looking forward to the Caledonian Challenge which will bring together staff from several of our locations whilst giving something back to the wider community. It won’t be easy, but the achievement will be worth it!”

The RMSpumptools teams are aiming to raise £5000 for Foundation Scotland, which gives vital grants to local community groups all over Scotland.
