West of Scotland Housing Association staff tough it out for charity

WSHA tough mudderA group of brave staff from West of Scotland Housing Association (WSHA) faced the challenge of Tough Mudder to raise nearly £1500 for two very worthwhile causes.

The money will be split between WSHA’s corporate charities, The Eileen McCallum Trust and Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF).

Michelle Riley, member of the Westscot Warriors, added: “The team have been giving it their all since training began in January. The last few months have been a great way to get to know colleagues whilst getting fighting fit. We are delighted to have raised such a fantastic amount and know the money will make such a difference. It was a truly amazing experience and I feel very lucky to have had chance to share it with my fantastic colleagues.”

Lynne Donnelly, chief executive of WSHA, said: “This is a great achievement for the team and it was fantastic to see how excited and motivated they were about taking on such a physical challenge. WSHA staff regularly go the extra mile to make a difference to the wider community and the Westscot Warriors are a shining example of this.”

The money raised will be added to the grand total raised throughout 2016 by the Association. Each year staff nominate charities close to their heart and throughout the year they take part in a variety of fundraising activities including physical challenges, festive auction and dress down Fridays.
