Employees from two Aberdeenshire local business’ Hortec Ltd and Graeme A. Anderson Builder came together to form Team Ted at this years’ Caledonian Challenge.
The team conquered the grueling 54 mile, 24 hour mountain event in an astounding 15 hours 58 minutes placing 2nd team overall and 1st walking team across the line.
Exhaustion failed to dampen their spirits with Graeme Anderson announcing “This is by far the best thing I have ever done”, just minutes after crossing the finish line.
The team came together earlier this year to raise awareness and funds for Teddington Trust helping us in our quest to supports patients suffering from the rare genetic condition Xeroderma Pigmentosum.
Between them, the four strong team have raised over £3000 with more still coming in!
“We are extremely proud of all the team who have done an amazing job in raising both the profile of our charity, and much needed funds. These funds can now be used to send vital Little Ted patient information resources to some of the 90+ children currently on our waiting list.” Rebecca Stewart Teddington Trust Co-Founder.
Hortec Ltd owner Wilbur Stewart said “My involvement with Teddington Trust began in 2012 when my nephew was diagnosed with XP just 13 months old. The important work that these funds enable Teddington Trust to carry out make the aching muscles and blisters worth it. The team have done an amazing job and we are delighted to have achieved such a great finish time.”
