Whisky staff show spirit for MS cause

Big-hearted staff at a Glasgow whisky plant tested their own bottle in a gruelling 24-hour endurance run to raise £25,000 for charity.
The team from The Edrington Group ran continually for 24 hours around its Drumchapel facility in order to raise much-needed cash for Revive MS Support.
The Maryhill-based charity provides vital services to multiple sclerosis sufferers in the West of Scotland.
The group of 20 staff totted up 180 miles by running around the bottling and blending facility on Great Western Road.
Max McFarlane, Highland Park Whisky maker - who later this year will be an Olympic torchbearer - said: "We wanted to do something really different to mark the 50th anniversary of charitable donations at The Edrington Group's parent company, The Robertson Trust - which was set up to help provide financial support to charities."
