Staff from Scotland’s leading workplace design specialist Space Solutions raised over £1000 for Sense Scotland by taking part in a rafting event.

The team of six ‘Space Cadets’, John Mulgrew, Chris Andres, William Campbell, Yvonne Jansen, Robert Griffiths and Stephen Griffiths, from the company’s Glasgow office in Bath Street and its Dundee office in Gemini Crescent, tackled the River Tummel in Perthshire.

The team raised £1118 through considerable support from Space Solutions management, as well as colleagues, clients, as well as their friends and families.

John Mulgrew, Commercial Manager at Space Solutions who organised the team, said: “It was an absolutely fantastic day. I have to admit it was a bit scary at times particularly when we managed to capsize at the bottom of an 18ft drop but that was all part of the fun and made it all the more exhilarating.

“Unfortunately we were unable to paddle our way back to first place after that but we are delighted to have raised this sum for a charity such as Sense Scotland which does invaluable work for deaf, blind and disabled children. We will be back again next year.”

In July staff from the Aberdeen office of Space Solutions completed the Three Peaks Challenge, climbing Britain’s three highest mountains, raising over £3500 for Marie Curie Cancer Care.
