A group of Edinburgh traffic wardens raised more than £870 for our charity recently when they took a break from enforcing parking regulations to climb one of Scotland’s most popular Munros.
Nine traffic wardens and office staff reached the summit of Schiehallion in Perthshire, a climb of 3,553ft, as part of a fundraising challenge for LifeCare.
The team chose to support LifeCare because we are a local charity. We offer a range of clubs, care services and specialist dementia care to more than 800 elderly people.
Our LifeCare centre also has a community café, which is a favourite stopping off point for traffic wardens on a break.
Although traffic wardens can walk up to 15 miles a day as they pound the streets, the group were less used to the steep climb to reach the top of the mountain. A couple of the team had hill climbing experience but the rest were new to the experience.
The team celebrated achieving their goal by planting a LifeCare flag at the summit and posing for pictures in their LifeCare T-shirts before beginning the descent and a well-earned fish supper on the journey home.
