Pedal power cash

Rutherglen Reformer - - Special Feature -

Last year over 10,500 rid­ers took part in Pedal for Scot­land, rais­ing over £110,000 for the event’s char­ity part­ner, the STV Ap­peal.

The char­ity pro­vides large and small grants to projects across Scot­land which all have the aim of help­ing the 220,000 chil­dren living in poverty.

The STV Ap­peal is a part­ner­ship be­tween STV and The Hunter Foun­da­tion, and has raised more than £8.2mil­lion to date pro­vid­ing prac­ti­cal help like food and warm clothes, cre­at­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties for train­ing and em­ploy­a­bil­ity, and so­cial and emo­tional sup­port.
