Moray outdoor charity chief assures they are unaffected by ‘rule of six’

A Moray outdoor charity has assured people that they remain “open for business” after the Scottish Government announced the ‘rule of 6’.

Outfit Moray is encouraging people to continue to attend their outdoor learning activities.

Chief executive Tony Brown said that the ‘rule of 6’ doesn’t affect their activities.

Mr Brown added: “Under the current Scottish Government guidelines, organised outdoor activities like ours are not affected by the ‘rule of 6’ and can still take place in groups of up to 30 people.

“All our adventure activities are overseen by our Covid officer, who is responsible for ensuring the health, safety and welfare of our participants, instructors, volunteers and the general public.”

Despite outdoor activities continuing, community fundraiser Karen Cox said the charity are still weathering the financial storm caused by the pandemic.

This comes as the charity has cancelled their 62 mile hike and bike challenge event Cairngorm to Coast which was due to take place in October.

Mrs Cox added: “As Cairngorm to Coast attracts participants from all over the UK, and with Covid-19 cases currently on the increase again, we have taken the difficult decision to cancel this year’s C2C.

“As a charity, we are heavily reliant on the income we receive from fundraising activities like C2C to fund the work we do with vulnerable or disadvantaged young people across Moray and, like many charities, the pandemic and necessary restrictions have had a huge impact on our ability to raise funds.”

The charity will continue to take advice from the Scottish Government.
