This evening, 27th July 2016, 8 RBS Graduate students are embarking on a 24-hour charity contest as part of the RBS Anniversary Challenge. The challenge involves teams of graduates across the UK competing to raise the most money in 24 hours for the charity Move On. One group hopes to raise donations by embarking on a 50 mile walk from Glasgow Central Station to Edinburgh.
Jack Garvin, a RBS graduate, contacted two10degrees to ask if they would support his challenge and provide him with a mobile tracking system to track his team’s progress from Glasgow to Edinburgh. Two10degrees will be providing Jack access to their Global Alerting Platform (GAP) Lone Worker mobile app. The device will send its position regularly and will be shown on a live public map.
“I thought it would be great if people could track our progress. I thought it would be good for our friends, families and supporters to monitor our progress, and I’m hoping this will generate more donations!”
Jack Garvin, RBS Graduate
Move On works in Scotland to unlock the potential of vulnerable young people and those affected by homelessness in order to improve their lives. Move On embeds the “teach a man to fish” philosophy through employability activity, education, money/debt advice, mentoring, and volunteering and employability opportunity. The team of graduates will be walking through the night to really bring alive the sleeping rough theme and will provide updates via social media.
“We wanted to do something that really tested our abilities and put ourselves in the mind-set of people who have to face hard times every day of their lives! We would really appreciate any support for this great cause, as it is a competition only donations between Wednesday 27th 5pm – Thursday 28th 5pm will be counted.”
Jack Garvin, RBS Graduate
The adventurous walking team is made up of Alessandro Bettiol, Matt Bidlake, Denis Boscovich, Jake Brown, Rebecca Cooper, Jack Garvin, Gillian Kelly and Samir Khoudi. You can track their progress by clicking this link.
“We’re thrilled to be supporting Jack and the rest of his team, as well as the other teams taking part in the RBS Anniversary Challenge across the UK. I look forward to following their progress.”
