Borders College

Hawick pair cycle to work - in Gala

Borders College is a regular participant in national Cycle to Work Day, with various numbers taking part each year as part of the Healthy Working Lives initiative.

Forecasted weather warnings meant fewer numbers this year, but a tandem of staff members from Hawick committed to an 18 mile pedal (despite the threat of a soaking!), arriving at Scottish Borders Campus in time to begin their working day.

David Killean (Vice Principal for Quality and Innovation) and Glen Turnbull (Publications Assistant) have both taken part in the event in previous years, and this year marks David’s final entry as he is set to retire later this month.

Both received a breakfast voucher from Health & Safety Manager Kevin Drum so that they could replenish their energy levels for the working day ahead – well done David and Glen.

For any Borders College staff members who may be interested in taking up cycling, there is a cycle to work scheme in operation through Edenred with Cycle Solutions.
