Man meets Wall

Published on

He’s done it!

Andrew has returned victorious from China, having conquered some of the most challenging sections of this incredible world heritage site.

He sweated. He laughed. He enjoyed working as a team with his fellow industry peers. He practised yoga. He even had a little cry at the enormity of it all.

But he did it, and along the way raised over £2.2k for hospitality charity HIT Scotland.

Andrew would like to thank everyone who donated prizes or money for their incredible support. If you haven’t had a chance to donate, please do so on his MyDonate page.

You can read Andrew’s intensely personal blog about the experience here.

Thank you!

Andrew is HITting the wall!

Published on

Andrew Scott, owner and MD of Heaven Scent, is passionate about the industry he’s worked in since he was 13 years old (which is a LONG time ago…). He wants to make a difference, so today he heads off to China to walk the wall and raise funds for Hospitality Industry Trust Scotland.

If you have a spare quid or two he has a mydonate page. All support is hugely appreciated!

Open seven days a week, the café offers breakfast, lunch, barista coffee and delicious home baking served by friendly staff.

The new Dunfermline opening adds a third outlet to the charming Heaven Scent coffee shop in Milnathort and the lively restaurant at Knockhill Racing Circuit. Heaven Scent also operates a corporate catering and outside catering service.

Andrew wins celeb support for fundraising efforts

Published on

Our founder and MD and Andrew is not shy. And it could be said he has the gift of the gab with a pinch of vision and drizzled with confidence. So it should come as no surprise that when he found himself sitting opposite Alastair Darling, he saw an opportunity.

Grabbing his ‘phone, Andrew asked the former MP and Chancellor of the Exchequer if he could record a plea in support of his fundraising efforts for HIT Scotland by walking the Great Wall of China. And he agreed! Andrew then took every chance he could to gain celebrity endorsement, including from DJ Des Clark, actor Grant Stott, chefs Theo Randall and Aldo Zilli, Weathergirl Judith ralston and even National Grand Winner “One for Arthur”.

The video has gone viral with over 5,000 views over the various sites where it has been posted, and the story has even captured the imagination of the national press, being picked up by The Sunday Post!
