Buzzworks steps up for charity

Teams aim to clock up equivalent of 16 marathons for Hospitality Action

LOCKDOWN is not getting in the way of Buzzworks Holdings’ fundraising efforts.

The group’s People and Operations Teams are aiming to walk, run and cycle the equivalent of 16 marathons to raise money for industry charity Hospitality Action.

As part of Buzzworks’ 2020 community challenge, each team plans to clock up 214 miles – the equivalent of a tour of the group’s 12 venues across Ayrshire and beyond, with the two teams in a race against each other to reach the collective 214 miles first.

Carole Lamond, Buzzworks Holdings’ people director, said: “We’ve been keeping in daily contact with all of our people and encouraging everyone to stay fit and healthy – both physically and mentally.

“Lots of us took part in the Run For Heroes 5k initiative and our teams at Scotts in Largs and Vic’s & The Vine in Prestwick are continuing to clock up the kilometres in a 100k May challenge for Hospitality Action and the NHS.

“In our community challenge so far, the People Team has reached 66 miles, but with some healthy internal rivalry I’m sure we’ll hit our target in no time and raise a great sum for charity.”
