The Cullen Property team decided to support the Scottish mental health charity Penumbra by walking, running and cycling the equivalent distance from Cullen in Moray, Scotland to Cullen in New York, America in 2021 – That’s 3,173 miles!
After surpassing the initial goal so early on in the year, the Cullen Property team decided to extend their ambitious target all the way to Cullen in Chile’s Tierra Del Fuego region – that’s roughly an extra 5,000 miles!
After a challenging year for many in 2020, we realised maintaining positive mental health had never been more important. This is why we selectively chose Penumbra for their unique approach to supporting those who came up against mental health challenges. With outdoor exercise being a great way to stay active and maintain positive mental health, we thought walking, running and cycling would be the perfect way to raise money in 2021 for our chosen cause. We are delighted to have exceeded our 8,173 mile target by 500 miles, bringing us to 8,600+ miles in total, raising a total of £2,080!
Penumbra is one of Scotland’s largest mental health charities. They support around 1,800 adults and young people every week and employ 460 staff across Scotland.
Founded in 1985, they work to promote mental health and wellbeing for all, prevent mental ill health for people who are ‘at risk’, and to support people with mental ill health to live fulfilling lives.
They provide a wide range of services which offer hope and practical steps towards recovery, and campaign to increase public knowledge about mental health and to influence national and local government policy.

We look forward to choosing our next cause in 2022.
As part of our journey towards carbon neutrality, we have teamed up with Trees for Life to plant a tree for each and every new tenancy that is started this year. To plant your own tree or view our ‘grove’ by clicking below.
Our trees are carefully planted in protected sites in the Scottish Highlands where they will create homes for wildlife and forests for the future. We are delighted to have planted over 291 trees at present and look forward to the Cullen Property Grove growing in the future.
