In a remarkable display of determination and compassion, a group of dedicated colleagues from ICR, comprising, Katie Francis- HR Director, Robyn Scott – HR Advisor Alannah Dias – HR Coordinator, Lesley Hamilton – Financial Controller, Jing Zhou – Senior Accountant, and their supportive friends, successfully completed the 17.8-mile ‘Mighty Stride’ Kiltwalk at the weekend. The team’s journey began at Duthie Park in Aberdeen, along the scenic Deeside railway line, and culminated at Bellfield Park in Banchory. Their commitment and determination was in support of The British Heart Foundation (BHF), the chosen charity partner for ICR for 2022-23.
The Kiltwalk event, provided an ideal platform for the team to make a tangible difference. As the final fundraising event on behalf of the BHF, the occasion particularly poignant as it was dedicated to the memory of our colleague, Gary McVicar. Moreover, the team’s efforts aimed to extend heartfelt support to all those affected by the loss or illness of individuals battling heart problems.
Katie Francis, HR Director, commented: “We were delighted to participate in the Kiltwalk for the second year running, to show our support for the British Heart Foundation. It was a great opportunity to socialise with colleagues as well as supporting our chosen charity partner. The rare appearance of the Scottish sunshine along with the beautiful Aberdeenshire countryside certainly helped us along the 17.8 miles.”
The British Heart Foundation, renowned for its tireless efforts in cardiovascular research, prevention, and support, resonated deeply with the team and their fundraising objectives. Heart disease continues to be a prevalent health concern worldwide, affecting countless lives. By aligning their efforts with the BHF, the team demonstrated their dedication to raising awareness and vital funds to combat this pervasive condition.
