Loch Duart has taken on the Great Cholesterol Challenge this October in partnership with HEART UK. The Scottish Salmon Farm is participating to raise funds and awareness by taking on a herculean challenge of 641 miles collectively to be walked, cycled, ran or swam by staff.
The challenge is part of National Cholesterol Month in October where HEART UK has created the Great Cholesterol Challenge to encourage people to raise funds by cycling, swimming or walking 100 miles throughout the month of October. Loch Duart has taken it a step further and created a personal target of 641 miles for staff: the distance between Loch Duarts farm in Badcall Bay, Northwest of Scotland, to the charity’s headquarters in London.
Loch Duart is an independent salmon farm and one of the first to be recognised by the RSPCA for the expert care they provide to the fish. They provide more than 6000 tons of high-quality salmon each year and are well known suppliers across leading restaurants and retailers.
HEART UK is the only cholesterol charity in the UK which provides support and information for families. They host a variety of events throughout the year to raise funds and awareness for families with high cholesterol, and Loch Duart has supported a range of their work since the partnership was announced in summer.
For this years’ National Cholesterol Month, the focus is around women’s health by raising awareness of the importance of women looking after their cholesterol.
Those at Loch Duart taking part in the 641-mile challenge throughout October will be walking, running, cycling or swimming as they raise funds and awareness about good heart health.
