The Furniture Makers’ Company, the furnishing industry’s charity, is inviting the public to join them and 2 Rifles, the Company’s military affiliate, on a 100-mile sponsored trek of the West Highland Way in 2018. 

The challenge will take place from 21st-26th April and see 15 participants walk 15-30km per day as they make their way from Milngavie in Greater Glasgow and finish at Fort William – the gateway to Ben Nevis. 

The cost of participating will be £350 per walker with meals and accommodation provided. Each person will have to commit to raising a minimum of £1000 for the charity. Sponsorship opportunities are also available. 

Jonny Westbrooke, CEO of The Furniture Makers’ Company, says: “The West Highland Way walk is perfect for anyone looking to undertake a challenge in 2018 or simply shed a few unwanted pounds following the revelry of Christmas. 

“We are absolutely delighted that it will be supported by 2 Rifles, which will give an excellent opportunity for participants to meet with soldiers, get fit and raise funds for their industry charity.”
