Helping the wheels of charity go round
Two Aberdeen businessmen are set to saddle up and cycle 200 miles across the north-east of Scotland in aid of charity.
Graeme Duncan, managing director of Westhill-based Xtreme Business Solutions and Round Table Area 44 chairman, and fellow Westhill and District Round Table member David Anderson will take to their bikes to raise money for Cash for Kids. The duo aims to raise £10,000 for the charity, which supports local disabled and disadvantaged children and young people under 18.
The cyclists%u2019 three-day challenge will take them through all of Round Table%u2019s Area 44 towns in Aberdeenshire. The pair will set off from Westhill on Friday, 31 August and cycle to Peterhead via Stonehaven, Aberdeen and Ellon. Day two will see them leave Peterhead bound for Turriff, stopping off in Banff on the way. On the final day of the cycle they will visit Inverurie and Banchory before finishing at Westhill.
Graeme said: %u201CCash for Kids is a very worthwhile cause, which benefits youngsters here in the north-east of Scotland. It is a charity that we have supported in the past and it seemed a very logical fit for this fundraising cycle, which takes place within the Aberdeenshire countryside.%u201D
The 200-mile route through the north-east was chosen by Graeme and David to highlight the locations of the Round Table Area 44 clubs and strengthen the links between them.
Graeme added: %u201CDistrict groups often pair up to participate in joint events or outings. As area chairman I wanted to do something that promotes the connections between all of the seven clubs in the area. By working together we can better meet the aims of the Round Table %u2013 to get involved in our local communities, put something back and make a real difference. Anyone who wishes to join us %u2013 even for a small part of the trip %u2013 is most welcome.%u201D
