Massive Cash Boost from Highland Cross

Organisers, supporters and volunteers gathered in Inverness yesterday for a ceremony to celebrate the achievements of this year’s Highland Cross event - and discover the total amount brought in by the annual duathlon. 

A record £277,189 was raised by the runners and riders who took part in The Highland Cross, a50-mile duathlon (20 miles on foot, 30 miles on bike) traversing the spectacular Scottish Highlands coast to coast, west to east from Kintail through Glen Affric and Strathglass to Beauly. That’s a cumulative total of £4.4 million raised for the Highlands in the event’s 34-year history.

Birchwood Highland’s Deputy Chief Executive, Annabel Mowat, gratefully accepted a cheque for £45,000 on behalf of the charity, which will fund a vital new social space at the charity’s Recovery Centre in Inverness. The charity, which is at the leading edge of mental health recovery, owns and manages Scotland’s only centre dedicated to assisting people to take control of their lives and move forward in the face of enduring mental health issues.
