THE manager of Alloa’s Kwik Fit branch has teamed up with colleagues to tackle the West Highland Way for charity.

Rayn Maunder, centre manager for Kwik Fit Stirling and Alloa, has joined up with five of his counterparts across Scotland to take on the 96 mile walk to support Air Ambulances UK.

The West Highland Way runs from Milngavie to Fort William, with the six walkers setting off from the Milngavie branch of Kwik Fit, a few short metres from the official start to the trail.

Ryan will be joined by Rhys Thompson from Glenrothes, Gregg Lang from Glasgow, Shaun McLernon from East Kilbride, Gary Stevenson from Hamilton and Jason Barry, regional network manager for Kwik Fit.

Jason said: “Our jobs keep us all pretty active, but taking on the West Highland Way is going to reveal how fit we really are.

“We’ve all been getting some training miles under our belts and are confident we can make it – although we are relying on the weather gods to smile on us.

“The air ambulance teams across the UK do an amazing job and we are really proud to be supporting their work.

“We want to raise as much money as we can, but also highlight the invaluable service they provide.”

Air Ambulances UK raises money for all air ambulance charities across the country and serves to raise awareness for their work.
