They did it! A huge congratulations to all the team that have put themselves through a real mental and physical challenge by trekking the Great Wall of China to raise funds for HIT, allowing us to provide even more scholarships for our emerging talent.
It has been much more physically challenging than they expected, with parts of the walk requiring them to scramble across narrow remnants of wall, steep steps with crumbling sides, and shrubs growing in the way. And all done in up to 39 degrees heat!
HIT Scotland’s David and Kirsty were on the challenge. David said: “Wow, that was a fantastic challenge! The support of the group has been amazing, with great teamwork at the scary bits making sure we all survived. Everyone has achieved much more than they ever thought they could, and together the team demonstrated everything that is fantastic about our industry. We’ve already raised a considerable amount for our emerging talent in 2018, but every penny helps so you can still donate if you’d like to!”
