  • uA-Team takes on Great Glen Challenge

    18 June 2018

    United Auctions has enlisted a ‘crack commando auctioneering unit’ to compete in this year’s RSABI Great Glen Challenge 2018 in August. 

    The ‘soldiers of fortune’ from Scotland’s leading livestock auctioneers have come out of the shadows on a mission to raise the most money for Scotland’s rural charity.

    Now in its seventh year, the annual, one-day, action-adventure event will see teams of four bike, kayak, walk and run a 46km Highland course on Friday 31 August 2018 to help people in Scottish agriculture.

    The uA-Team stars: team captain Jack Keane as John ‘Hannibal’ Smith on the running leg; Jenna Reid as ‘Face’ will be walking; Murray Steel will be cycling as ‘Howling Mad’ Murdock, and Chris Rogerson as B.A. Baracus ‘ain’t getting’ on no plane’, he’s kayaking. 

    Chris Rogerson / B.A. Baracus said: “Five years ago, United Auctions’ Rostrum Rascals won the trophy. This year the uA-Team ain’t in it to win it; no, fool, we’re in it to raise the money. 

    Team captain Jack Keane / ‘Hannibal’ added: “I love it when a plan comes together.”

    So, if you can find them, maybe you can help the uA-Team…fundraise for RSABI. Follow their training and other exploits on YouTube, sponsor them at all United Auctions’ marts, and online at uk.virginmoneygiving.com/Team/uATeam
