Coca-Coca Euro­pean Part­ners and our work within the East Kil­bride com­mu­nity is of great im­por­tance to us.

“I’m de­lighted to see so many of our col­leagues get­ting be­hind events such as the Glas­gow Kiltwalk, sup­port­ing a worth­while cause to­gether as a team while build­ing upon some of the fan­tas­tic work we’re cur­rently do­ing to help lo­cal char­i­ties and com­mu­nity projects across the re­gion.”

Robert McHarg is chief ex­ec­u­tive at A&M Scot­land and praised CCEP for their par­tic­i­pa­tion.

He said: “A&M Scot­land is so grate­ful to have the sup­port of the team at Coca-Cola Euro­pean Part­ners in East Kil­bride.

“Their com­mit­ment to walk­ing the Kiltwalk and rais­ing so much spon­sor­ship has made a real im­pact in the ser­vices we’re pro­vid­ing for our young peo­ple.

“We’ve also been de­lighted to re­ceive wa­ter for our hol­i­day camps to keep our kids hy­drated which has been a great mon­eysaver.

“We re­ally do ap­pre­ci­ate the sup­port from CCEP and look for­ward to con­tin­u­ing to work with the team in the fu­ture.”

The Kiltwalk was held through­out the coun­try with events not only in Glas­gow but also tak­ing place in Ed­in­burgh, Aberdeen and Dundee.
