Glengoyne Distillery Stillman Raises £1,000 for charity

7th June 2011

Stillman at Glengoyne Distillery, Duncan McNicoll, has walked the famed West Highland Way raising £1,000 for charity.

Duncan completed the 95 mile trip, which starts in Milngavie, passes near the distillery and ends in Fort William. Duncan undertook the feat with his brother, John, son, Calum, son's girlfriend, Hollie and nephew, Craig, by his side.

Recipient of Duncan and his family's donation, The Scots Australian Children's Cancer Trust, was set up by husband and wife Alan and Janet MacDermid, in appreciation of the life-saving treatment their grandson, Joseph MacDermid, received for a brain tumour at Sydney Children's Hospital. Funds raised go to supporting cancer charities around the world including World Child Cancer, which twins hospitals in developed countries with others in poorer countries such as Malawi, Mozambique, Ghana, and Mexico.

Duncan McNicoll said of his accomplishment: "When I heard about all the great work that Alan and Janet's trust goes towards it only seemed right to do whatever I could to help. I really appreciated that my family were willing to help and we enjoyed doing the walk together to help children affected by cancer."
