Kier employees are all heart as they embark on charity challenge

EMPLOYEES from Kier Regional Building Scotland are taking on a series of challenges to raise £15,000 for the British Heart Foundation and support local charities, the Scottish Association for Mental Health (SAMH) and End Youth Homelessness through the Kier Foundation.

Teams from across the business are participating in the ‘Boots on for Buildings’ challenge, which involves taking on challenges in their local area including walking 1,000,000 steps, climbing 10,000 feet – including climbing Ben Lomond, taking part in an office boot camp at their Aberdeen office and walking from their Scottish HQ in Stepps to the Burrell Museum in Glasgow, where Kier is currently carrying out a refurbishment project.

As part of the challenge, at least 60 people will further support the British Heart Foundation as they receive CPR training. Over 100 employees in Scotland will complete their leg of the challenge as part of a 2,000-strong UK team, as Kier aims to raise £150,000 overall for charity.

Brian McQuade, managing director of Kier Regional Building Scotland said, “We’re very proud to take on this challenge, which will provide much-needed funds for the British Heart Foundation and our local charity partners. Everyone taking part is incredibly committed to this challenge and a big thank you goes to everyone who has sponsored us, including our supply chain partners for their generous donations to date.”
