On Saturday 17th August, Audrey & Stacy from our Business Insurance Team took part in the 2019 Rough Runner at Edinburgh’s Penicuik Estate. The girls took part in order to raise funds for their Shettleston Branch Charity of the Year, With Kids.
The Rough Runner is made up of distance running and epic obstacles. The girls were faced with a 40m water slide, a sweeper arm and many more challenging obstacles.
Between them the girls raised an amazing £600!
About With Kid’s
With Kids‘ work is child centred and recognises that all families regardless of background can have difficulties but may not know how to access the right support. There may also be concerns that asking for help will result in unwanted intervention. Their services aim to provide children and their parents/carers with the tools to manage their lives effectively. Central to this work are the core concepts of building self-esteem and resilience in children and supporting parents in managing this.
Many the issues can be traced back to generational problems from early childhood, this is supported by developments in psychology and neuroscience. With Kids is based on a preventative approach that involves early intervention, working in tandem with children and families to enable the best life chances possible.
