Woodley did the 30 mile cycle and run on 21 July this year and collected sponsorship money for both the Highland Wildcats and Highland Youngesters with Disability. The cycle started at Fort George and then onto to Croy past Culloden Battle Field then to Inverness ending at Queens Park. The run began along the Caledonian Canal towards Dochgaroch and back to Queens Park.
Daniel Woodley said, after donating the money, “I don’t really know what gave me the idea to do the fundraiser! I just wanted to do something to give back to the team. I’m sure the money will be put to good use.”
Youth Development Officer, Robbie Paulin commented, “It’s great to see one of our volunteers taking it upon themselves to go out and raise money for the team. We’re in the process of selling some old equipment and tickets to the BLITZ AWARDS 2013 to raise funds and this money raised by Daniel is fantastic boost to those efforts. On behalf of everybody in the organisation I’d like to thank Daniel for his contribution, not only this Cycle and Run but for his continuing volunteering with the Wildcats.”
As part of the Positive Life Pathways project, the Highland Wildcats – lead by the new Youth Panel – will be running more fund raising events – planned and lead by young people within the organisation – in the coming months.
