TAYSIDE SOLICITORS RAISE OVER £7K FOR CHARITY CASH FOR KIDS

Tayside based solicitors and estate agents Miller Hendry have raised over £7,000 for Radio Tay’s charity Cash for Kids, following a company challenge to complete the Dundee Kiltwalk in August.

Nine staff from Miller Hendry’s Dundee and Perth offices were presented with a silver disc in recognition of their efforts at their Dundee office this week. The team completed The Mighty Stride version of the Kiltwalk, which saw them walk 25 miles from St Andrew’s Old Course to Monifieth, at the event on 18 August. Perth based solicitor Michael Johnston also completed the Big Stroll, covering 11 miles.

A further 40% is added to all funds raised by the Hunter Foundation, the organisation behind the Kiltwalk. This assisted Miller Hendry to raise a grand total of £7,027.30 for the charity.

Radio Tay’s Cash for Kids support children aged 0-18 who are disabled, disadvantaged or suffering from abuse or neglect in Tayside and North East Fife.

Caroline Fraser, Partner at Miller Hendry, commented: “I’m immensely proud of our team for completing a very difficult challenge and raising a large sum for such a worthy cause. For me, the event was also a family affair, with my children completing the six-mile Wee Wander to enable them to make their own contribution.”
