Peo­ple hike it, bike it and bake it for MS Cen­tre

The Oban Times - - DISTRICTS -

TSB PART­NERS in Lochgilp­head have raised £166 for MS Cen­tre Mid Argyll by ditch­ing their nor­mal mode of trans­port and rid­ing their bikes to work.

One part­ner even rode her horse to work.

In ad­di­tion, those who pre­ferred to show off their bak­ing skills, pro­duced won­der­ful bak­ing to sell in the branch, in aid of the cen­tre.

‘Hike It or Bike It’ was ini­ti­ated by TSB’s team in Scot­land in 2013, which has raised more than £40,000 for char­ity.

In 2014, TSB made the ini­tia­tive an an­nual fundraiser and many part­ners hopped on the sad­dle or trekked into work to raise money. ‘Bake It’ was added to the event this year, mak­ing it more in­clu­sive for those who pre­fer to be in the kitchen than out­doors.

Chris­tine Shankly, bank man­ager at TSB Lochgilp­head, said: ‘By leav­ing their cars at home and shun­ning pub­lic trans­port or tak­ing to the kitchen to bake, our team has worked hard to make this event a suc­cess.

‘Thanks go to all of our part­ners who took part and ev­ery­one who has sup­ported them.

‘We have re­ally en­joyed get­ting out­doors, ditch­ing our nor­mal com­mute into work and show­ing off our bak­ing skills. It’s fan­tas­tic to know our ef­forts will help such a great cause.’
