Over 70 Wood Group employees, along with their family and friends, have put their best foot forward in support of research into type 1 diabetes.

This year Wood Group PSN (WGPSN) CEO Dave Stewart took up the role of Corporate Walk Chair for the annual fundraising walk held by type 1 diabetes charity, JDRF. The 5k event took place at Drum Castle in Aberdeenshire, Scotland on 27th September, 2015. Funds raised will go towards helping find a cure for the chronic condition which impacts about 400,000 people in the UK, 29,000 of them children.

Speaking about his support of the event, Dave says: "Our company is guided by our Core Values which means that even when working in a challenging business climate, our commitment to the communities we live and work in is never compromised. Throwing our support behind JDRF and helping this important charity in their bid to find a cure for this disease, is an example of this commitment. It was fantastic to see the positive response from our employees who showed enthusiasm and empathy by coming together to walk for this commendable cause."
