A team from the Busby Hotel got out their walking boots and climbed Ben Lomond to raise money for charity.

The team of 23 raised a grand total of £1,845 for their charity partner – When You Wish Upon a Star.

The charity brings smiles to the families and siblings of children aged 2-16 who are living with a life-threatening illness.

The whole team conquered Ben Lomond and reached the summit through sheer determination and teamwork – and they were straight back to work the following day to take care of a wedding.

Juliet Parry, general manager, said: “This was a huge challenge for us, and a great sense of achievement. Even though we’ve gone through a busy spell with lots of weddings and functions, we also managed to climb a mountain and raise a fantastic amount of money for a great cause. I’m incredibly proud of the team at the Busby Hotel, they always go the extra mile.”

The hotel invited Judith King, from the When You Wish Upon a Star charity, to collect the cheque.

Judith said: “Juliet and all her team at the Busby Hotel are simply amazing, their team spirit and drive to support When You Wish Upon A Star this year has been lovely to witness.

“We can’t thank you enough.”
