In May Andrew Muirhead and Son Ltd Managing Director Colin Wade completed a 96-mile walk through the West Highland Way in Scotland. He walked for a total of 37.5 hours. The toughest section of the walk was the exposed Rannoch Moor section, which Colin accomplished in snow and hail. The walk ended in Fort William.

Last week, Colin presented the cheque to the With Kids charity founders at the Andrew Muirhead and Son at Dalmarnock Leather Works. With Kids works tirelessly to improve lives and opportunities for a number of youngsters in the communities local to Andrew Muirhead's Dalmarnock Leather Works. A small charity based in the East-End of Glasgow With Kids focuses on working with children and their families to provide a range of individual, social and practical support.

The donation will also help to re-build resilience and self-esteem in the often-troubled children that With Kids usually deal with.

At the cheque handover event Colin said: “I am overwhelmed at how generous everyone has been with their donations. The walk wasn’t an easy task but very rewarding when I discovered £7,000 had been raised for such a worthwhile charity. I look forward to doing more charity walks in the future and even though this one is complete it is not too late to donate! Please visit

Tricia Hughes, Founding Director of With Kids said: “We would like to thank Andrew Muirhead and Son Ltd and Colin Wade for his tremendous donation of £7,000. To walk the West Highland Way, all 96 miles, inspired all of us here at With Kids and the families we work with.  We are using this donation to fund a camping trip for our families and this money has helped with camping equipment, tents, transport and food to ensure all our families have a great weekend away.  From everyone here at With Kids and on behalf of all the families taking part in the With Kids camping weekend, we would like to thank Colin, (and his blisters) and hope that people draw as much inspiration from this wonderful gift as we did.”
