On Sunday 9th June, Gemma and Kelly from our Cumbernauld Team were brave enough to abseil the Falkirk Wheel. The Wheel is 35 metres high and with a fear of heights this was a daunting and emotional challenge for the girls.
The girls took part in order to raise money for their Cumbernauld Branch Charity of the Year, Strathcarron Hospice – voted by our Cumbernauld customers.
Between them the girls raised an amazing £600!!
