Big Steps for Little People

“Something special’s happening in Scotland  – and Virgin Money Giving is part of it.  The philanthropist Sir Tom Hunter has laid down a challenge for the current generation to eradicate child poverty.  And fresh from hosting George Clooney at the UK’s biggest business dinner in Edinburgh, he went to the National Stadium at Hampden Park to launch what will become the nation’s biggest participation activity; the new Kiltwalk .

And thanks to the backing of The Hunter Foundation, every penny, every pound raised by the walkers will go to help children in Scotland who need it most.  Sadly one in five here are caught in the poverty trap and Kiltwalk’s aim in 2016 is to raise more than £1.5 million.

So, we need you to sign-up, raise funds and walk.   When you register, you will go straight to your own Virgin Money Giving page and sign-up for the walk of your choice – either the full 26 miles, 13 miles or the wee walk of around 6 miles. Each event is an amazing experience with our team of Kilties and family and friends encouraging you along the way.  And at the end, there’s a Scottish party with food, a refreshment  and great music to celebrate your achievement..

The 4  Kiltwalks – always on a Sunday – in 2016 are:

We look forward to seeing you there – all you have to do is register now at the Kiltwalk website and join the conversation on twitter and on our Facebook page.”
