Startline employees raise more than £3,500 at finish line of Great Scottish Run

Startline Motor Finance have raised more than £3,500 for charity in the Great Scottish Run.

Twelve employees from Startline Motor Finance have raised more than £3,500 for charity in the Great Scottish Run.

Eight completed a 10K course along the River Clyde and past some of the city’s best-known landmarks such as The Hydro, Pacific Quay and the McLennan Arch, while a further four finished the half marathon route. Around 30,000 took part in the event in total.

The charity chosen by Startline is the Saturday Café, a Glasgow club whose main purpose is to provide short break and recreational activities for disabled children and young people that promote social integration, health and wellbeing.

Startline’s head of human resources Sara Copeland (pictured) said: “Taking part in this kind of event is good for everyone.

“It raises funds for a very worthwhile charity – and one with which we have personal links – while promoting healthy activity across the company.”

Startline’s chief executive Paul Burgess (pictured) said: “There’s a lot of enthusiasm for running here at Startline and it is good to have such a high level of involvement.

“We’d like to say thank you to our many sponsors across the motor finance industry.”
