SPAR Scotland staff complete Kiltwalks to raise funds for GroceryAid

Employees of Scottish SPAR wholesaler and retailer CJ Lang & Son took part in all four Kiltwalks over the summer to raise funds for GroceryAid.

A total of 186 colleagues from stores across Scotland and the Dundee-based depot and head office, as well as members of the field teams, got involved in the mass participation walking events in Glasgow, Aberdeen, Dundee and Edinburgh.

They completed various lengths, from the Wee Wander (six miles) to the Mighty Stride (26 miles).

Shareholders, the chairman and the CEO also took part, and three of the senior team completed all four Mighty Stride walks.

Participants in the Kiltwalks raise funds for a charity of their choice, with GroceryAid being the CJ Lang preferred option. In total, including the top-up by Sir Tom Hunter, who adds 50% to all funds raised, the amount donated to GroceryAid was £24,038.

Sonya Harper, central operations director for CJ Lang, said: “It was great fun getting our teams out walking the fantastic Kiltwalk routes, raising vital funds for GroceryAid while having some fun along the way. Many of our team are already talking about Kiltwalk 2023!”
