“Beatson Cancer Charity has worked with Sport Ecosse for many years now. The team are incredibly helpful and knowledgeable and make everything extremely easy for us, in particular for our flagship event, Off the Beatson Track. With over 2,000 participants taking on a 10k walk, Sport Ecosse deal with the logistics and route, liaise with the venue and other contacts for set up and they support our walkers throughout the day. We have never had any problems; they are a pleasure to work with and I can’t recommend them enough.”

“New Ways has been working with Sport Ecosse for 10 years and are delighted by the quality of events they have organised for us – especially the bike rides. They make it work for people of all abilities, so everyone feels part of the team and enjoys themselves while raising money for a great cause. The team are very helpful, knowledgeable and professional and provide great support and encouragement along the way. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Sport Ecosse to others and I am looking forward to working with them in 2021.”

“St Columba’s Hospice has been working with Sport Ecosse Events for more than ten years now. I can’t speak highly enough of Kevin and his team. They have delivered our Celtic Challenge seamlessly each year and the event would not be the same without their professionalism and positive attitude. They are also great fun to be around and are always very popular with our participants.”
Jon Heggie, Director of Fundraising
“In 2019, Sport Ecosse supported Leeds Cares with our UCI partnership and events programme, including our flag relay challenge. The team were fantastic, not only planning the event and looking after all the logistics, but also looking after our supporters – many of whom have gone on to do further fundraising for us since. I cannot recommend Sport Ecosse highly enough to look after your event and give your supporters a really positive experience.”
Giles Fretwell, Head of Events
“St Columba’s Hospice has been working with Sport Ecosse Events for 3 years now. I can’t speak highly enough of Kevin and his team. They have delivered our Celtic Challenge seamlessly each year and the event would not be the same without their professionalism and positive attitude. They are also great fun to be around and are always very popular with our participants.”
Martin Lawlor, Senior Fundraising Manager, St Columba's Hospice
“The Malin to Mizen cycle in 2013 was the first time I have worked with the Sport Ecosse team on a Marie Curie challenge and it was simply superb. Attention to detail and communication is the key to making these events a success for participants, and the charity they are supporting, and the Kevin and the team knew exactly how to support and motivate the large group of all ages and stages we had. They even managed to keep us upbeat through the hills, head winds and generally wild weather we had to contend with and were excellent at keeping the group focused on the real impact the event has on the charity we were all supporting. Thank you." Ecosse!”
Vonnie Carson, Marie Curie Charity Rep
“Sport Ecosse Events were professional, friendly and keen to help our 60 participants on The Marie Curie Malin to Mizen Cycle in 2013. They encouraged and supported all abilities to complete this tough challenge. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them in the future.”

Karen Milne, Director of Fundraising & Communications, St Vincent’s Hospice
