Below is a quote from Jim Mcauley, organiser of the Glen Affric Duathlon event that took place on 10th May.  SPAR Scotland were the headline sponsor.

"Many thanks again to SPAR Scotland for their financial assistance this year. It is expensive to stage an event in a remote location at a reasonable cost to entrants so we are very grateful for their support. With their help we were able to purchase the Start/Finish archway and much needed folding tables for the registration tent. They also organised and supplied the goody bags that I'm sure competitors appreciated.

A big thank you to Cannich Stores our local SPAR shop that has been supportive of the duathlon in recent years. The store is very much at the heart of the local community and owners Nicole and Brad Collins have been keen to support and promote numerous activities in the area. While many rural areas see the decline of village stores it's great to see SPAR Cannich going from strength to strength.

Hopefully we are at the beginning of long term relationship with SPAR and we look forward to the opportunity of working with them in the future."
