A GROUP of lawyers are preparing for a charity walk on Friday in aid of Clydebank Asbestos Group (CAG).

Staff from Digby Brown will head out from Croy around 8am heading for the International Asbestos Memorial in Clydebank later in the day.

Hope Robertson, from CAG, said the funds would be split between the Clydebank group and Asbestos Action (Tayside).

“We rely on donations and Digby Brown have been absolutely superb,” she said. “We couldn’t have survived without events like this.”

Bob Dickie, chairman of CAG, added: “Since 1992 we have supported communities across Glasgow and the south west of Scotland and this wouldn’t be possible without the help of other organisations such as Digby Brown.”

“I offer my sincerest thanks – you help us help others.”

Fraser Simpson, head of industrial disease at Digby Brown, said: “Digby Brown understand the diagnosis of an asbestos-related disease can be difficult for sufferers and their families.

“The support provided by charities such as CAG is indispensable to these families and we are honoured to be able to support such a worthy cause with efforts such as our marathon walk.”
