Cycle to Amsterdam for Guide Dogs Scotland

The Saltire Foundation Interns at Edinburgh Airport – along with staff from across different departments at the airport - have been cycling the distance to Amsterdam today.

Set up on spin bikes in the Plaza the cyclists have also been visited by guide dogs and their handlers, and have been collecting funds for Edinburgh Airport’s corporate charity of the year - Guide Dogs Scotland.

Guide Dogs Scotland Community Fundraiser Kyla Stratton said:

“It costs around £50,000 to train and support each guide dog throughout its working life, and this is supported entirely by public generosity.

“We’d like to say a huge thank you to the team at Edinburgh Airport for their superb efforts, which will help us make a life-changing difference to someone with sight loss.”

Gordon Dewar, Edinburgh Airport’s Chief Executive, said:

“Full credit to The Saltire Foundation Interns who have arranged this cycle to Amsterdam event in our Plaza.

“The aim Guide Dogs Scotland being our official corporate charity for 2016 is to enable a deeper understanding of the great work they do and help raise funds for their vital organisation.”
