On the 2nd of October, 18 of our employees are taking part in the Great Scottish Run to raise money for Chest, Heart & Stroke Scotlandwhich is Scotland’s leading charity for those with heart conditions, a cause of great importance to Loch Lomond Group.
At the beginning of the year, one of our colleagues suffered a cardiac arrest and was saved by a defibrillator on site. Since this terrifying event, we have increased the coverage across our sites of defibrillators, offered training to give people confidence in how to use these life-saving devices, shared resources on how to keep themselves and their family healthy and offered free health checks on site.
The Great Scottish Run will be the culmination of the company’s efforts, which aims to raise awareness of heart health and the importance of physical activity in staying fit and healthy. A company Justgiving fundraising page and various other fundraising events have been set up to raise as much as possible for CHSS.
