Young & Partner’s Craig Smith to raise vital funds for local cancer charity

Our Commercial Property Associate, Craig Smith, will take part in a 50 mile ‘Bridge to Bridge’ walk, in aid of local cancer charity, Toby’s Magical Journey.

The third annual charity walk will take place on Saturday 17th June. Setting off at sunrise from the Forth Rail Bridge in North Queensferry, the route meanders through the former mining towns of West Fife, around the majestic twin beacons of the Lomond hills and over the rolling agricultural landscape of North East Fife, before arriving at the Tay Rail Bridge around midnight. It’s Fife, but as rarely experienced before. Last year’s walk featured a number of well-kent faces who joined the group for part of the walk, including the Lord Provost, Jim Leishman and Willie Rennie, MSP.

‘Toby’s Magical Journey to be Cancer Free’ is the brainchild of Toby Etheridge, who in December 2014 was diagnosed with Leukaemia, aged 9. Since then, Toby has tirelessly fundraised to show others that living life with cancer “is not all doom and gloom” and that you can overcome the illness. Two years later, aged 11, Toby has now raised over £20,000 for local children and young people across Scotland. Funds raised by Toby’s Magical Journey are used to provide practical support to others diagnosed with cancer, as well as offering advice and support for families and to raise awareness in understanding all aspects of childhood and adolescent cancer.

For anyone interested in taking part in the charity walk, you can register for free at hike.brownpapertickets.com. Participants can choose to walk the entire route, an individual segment, or get together with family/friends/colleagues to walk the route as a team relay. Alternatively, if you would instead like to help the group reach their fundraising target for Toby’s Magical Journey of £3,000, please visit https://mydonate.bt.com/fundraisers/cuparroundtable.
