KiltWalk 2023 for Blood Cancer UK

03/10/2023

Some of you may be familiar with Richard Grigor, one of our long-standing technicians here at Porsche Centre Edinburgh. 

On the 13 October last year, Richard received life changing news that his wife Julie had been diagnosed with Blood Cancer. After several months of treatment and support from Blood Cancer UK, we are pleased to share that Julie is now in remission. 

Therefore, as this month is Blood Cancer Awareness month as a 'Thank You' to Blood Cancer UK and the ongoing support the family are receiving, we wanted to help Julie in giving something back. 

Therefore, on Sunday the 17 September a group of colleagues from Porsche Centre Edinburgh took part in Edinburgh's Mighty Stride Kilt Walk of 21 miles to raise money for Blood Cancer UK. 

After the teams incredible achievement, we are delighted to share we raised £4,000 for Blood Cancer UK. This incredible amount of money will allow them to continue funding 360 researchers and staff across the UK who are searching for the next breakthrough to beat Blood Cancer.

Thank you to everyone who donated and supported the team along their journey, we could not have done it without you.
