The couple, who volunteer at the cancer care centre in Glasgow, are delighted 
with the amount raised and thank everyone who contributed.

Marysia said: “We thank everyone who contributed to this amazing total.

“The walk was hard going at times – particularly the uphill part - but we thoroughly enjoyed it.

“We were always thinking about why we were doing it and it made it all worthwhile.”

Before they set off, Robert said: “Beatson Cancer Charity exists to enhance the lives of patients affected by cancer, by providing a range of complementary therapies, such as reiki, reflexology & full body massages, along with the enhancement of technologies through continual research, all whilst always having patients 
at the heart of everything 
they do.

“ These are values both myself and Marysia hold dearly and support through voluntary work within the Beatson Café on a regular basis”.
