brian-dickson-and-allan-morrice-st-fergus-gas-terminal-workersBig-hearted workers from the St. Fergus Gas Terminal in Grampian have put their endurance to the test with two long distance fundraising journeys, which raised £12,666 for charity.

Brian Dickson and Allan Morrice (pictured, left) tackled a 600-mile bicycle trip to the Outer Hebrides, while Norman Cunningham endured the two day, 48 mile mountain marathon – The Highlander – at Cannich.

Brian, 50, from Inverallochy and Allan, 57, from New Aberdour raised £6,400 which goes to the ‘Friends of Anchor’ for the care of cancer patients in Aberdeen Royal Infirmary.

Norman, 35, from Ellon – who completed the course with friend, Ryan Gordon, also 35, from Stonehaven – raised £6,266 for In Your Hands, which is funding the rebuilding of a Nepalese school destroyed in an earthquake.

The PX Group – which operates the gas terminal – donated £6,000 towards the causes through its give as you earn scheme.
