Congratulations to our friend and colleague Jim Tullis for completing his latest cycle challenge taking part in ‘Uncle Bob’s Sportif’ – an 80-mile circuit from The Ben’s estate in Pitlochry to Blair Athol Distillery. So far he has individually raised over £750 in support of The Ben. Mark Emlick and the team at Consensus Capital Group are delighted and extremely proud to support Jim's money raising achievement.
Passionate about cycling Jim is also passionate about this charity and the work they do.
“I’ve worked in the industry for over 30 years and have a true passion for our people and the experiences we offer. I thought it was time to add another event under my belt for The Ben and I’m looking for your support.
I’ve chosen to cycle for Uncle Bob’s Sportif to help raise money for colleagues in the industry who need a little bit of extra help. We could all use a bit of support every now and again and I’m really excited to dig out the lycra (who am I kidding, I wear it every day), get on the bike and cycle for a great cause.
Every little helps and I’d really appreciate any and all donations for this worthy cause.”

More about The Ben:
The BEN, under various guises, has been in operation since 1864.
The long established Scottish Wine and Spirit Merchants’ Benevolent Institution was founded in Glasgow in 1864 while the East of Scotland Licensed Trade Benevolent Institution was established in 1887, before the two organisations merged in 1976 to form the Benevolent Society of the Licensed Trade of Scotland - now commonly known as The BEN.
Offering financial, social and emotional support, The BEN supports people of all ages who have worked in the licensed trade for at least three years full-time with beneficiaries receiving annual financial assistance as well as discretionary grants for emergency situations.
As well as financial support, emotional support and companionship, the charity also operates the picturesque BEN Pitlochry Estate on the banks of the River Tay, consisting of 18 bungalows which are rented at subsidised rates for eligible residents.
Although over 150 years old, The BEN’s Strategy is to continue expanding its support across Scotland and ensure its services remain as relevant as ever to the licensed trade.
