GLASGOW-based Russell Lawrie, Commercial Director at Endpoint Automation Services (EAS) recently cycled The Great Glen Way from Fort William to Inverness (73 Miles) to raise funds for B.A.S.I.C and Corner House Nursery.

Russell, who is based at the EAS offices in Tay House, Bath Street raised £500 for the registered charity which was founded 25 years ago.

B.A.S.I.C and Corner House Nursery are committed to providing accessible childcare in a safe, secure, warm, caring and stimulating environment where each child is valued, respected, and treated as an individual regardless of race, gender, culture, background, needs, or abilities.

Russell comments: “The ride couldn’t have been more challenging, however I kept myself focussed on the end goal, to raise much needed funds for the charity, and am so thankful to family members for their support.

“My dad David joined me from Fort William to Fort Augustus on his eBike to set the pace for me!  It was pitch black for about 2 hours, so that was a bit of fun as we set off at 06.30 am. 

“Then my brother-in-law Ross, joined me in Fort Augustus, for the second half of the route to Inverness. Then we rode in pitch black again, for the last two hours so we were heavily reliant on our lights.

“The support the charity provides to families, and the people within it, are incredible so I am thrilled that I have been able to contribute to their fundraising efforts.”
