Penumbra - Support Our Team As They Walk, Run & Cycle For Charity

The team at Cullen Property in Edinburgh have pledged to walk, cycle and run the distance from Cullen in Morayshire to Cullen in New York State in a bid to raise money for Scottish mental health charity Penumbra.

The energetic residential property investment and lettings specialists will cover a minimum of 3,173 miles in an effort to raise a minimum of £2,000 for the charity. Their progress will be measured via tracking apps, with regular updates posted on the team’s fundraising website on Virgin Money Giving.

Cullen Property managing director Steve Coyle, said: “The pandemic has really put the spotlight on the importance of caring for our mental health. Most of us will have felt stressed or anxious at some point over the past 12 months, and our team at Cullen Property is no exception.

“Many of our staff felt that exercise has helped them cope and chatting about how far team members had run or cycled is really how the idea to cover the distance – virtually - from Cullen (Moray) to Cullen (New York State) was born.”

The team hope to cover the distance by December 31 2021 allowing them to pass on the funds raised to Penumbra.

For those team members less athletically inclined, walking is an alternative option.

Cullen Property marketing manager Scott Binnie said: “Despite being relatively unknown outside of the mental health community, Penumbra is one of Scotland’s largest charities in the field.

“We felt that their positive approach and their combined focus on mental wellbeing and life circumstances stood out from the crowd. We are delighted to support Penumbra’s work with our Cullen to Cullen initiative.”
