A group of friends and family from Falkirk and Stirling have come together to raise more than £2,000 for a cancer charity to support Eurocell employee Laura MacPhee, who was diagnosed with breast cancer earlier this year.

Laura and her husband Matt, her parents and her children, along with friends David Woolley, Mark Reid and Kevin Girdwood and family, all from local communities around Falkirk and Stirling, took part in the Glasgow Kiltwalk for Laura, with funds raised going to Maggie’s, a charity that provides free expert care and support in centres across the UK for those living with cancer as well as their friends and family.

For those who take part in the Kiltwalks in Glasgow – there are three routes to take. Laura and her family took part in the Wee Wander, a 3 mile walk, while David and Mark took the Big Stroll, which saw them travel 14 miles on foot from Abbotsford Road, Clydebank to the final destination at Balloch park. 

David Woolley, who works with Laura at local trade branch Eurocell Falkirk, said: “It’s incredible to have raised more than £2,000 for Maggie’s to support Laura. It’s way more than we expected we could achieve, so thank you to all those who donated – it was a long 14 miles for me and Mark but we did it.

“We are all right there with Laura, she has been inspirational and we are hoping to do more fundraising efforts for her later this year.”
