Drivers rise to their charity challenge

National Express Dundee is applauding a group of its employees for rising to their latest charity challenge – a 140 ft abseil down University of Dundee’s Tower Building.

Drivers Ross Murdoch, Allan Fordyce and Gillian Moffatt and Travel Shop Customer Adviser Dan Stewart were among 60 people taking the plunge on Saturday 23rd August to raise money for Tay FM and Tay AM’s Cash for Kids.

Organised by drivers Ross and Allan, this was the local charity’s first ever abseil event and has so far raised a massive £5500 for underprivileged local children.

Dundee driver and fundraiser Ross says it was an amazing experience: 

“The adrenaline rush at the top of the tower is nothing compared to the excitement I’m feeling about the amount everyone has raised so far! I want to thank everyone who’s taken part and all those who’ve supported us."

“We’ve been working alongside Cash For Kids for some time now to improve the lives of local children - it’s extremely important to us to help people in the area where National Express Dundee operates its bus services.  This is our biggest ever fundraiser so far and I’m really pleased it’s been a success.”
