Take a KiltWalk and make things better

READERS may have heard of the ‘cakewalk’, but how many people could say what a ‘KiltWalk’ is?

It is, in fact, a great idea for a sponsored walk, with four Scottish children’s charities benefiting.

If you wish, 20 per cent of your sponsorship can go to a children’s organisation of your choice; and if you are in a team of five or more, 50 per cent of your earnings can be put to a children’s charity, nursery or school you want to support.

The gentlemen in the picture will be raising money for the Links Park Community Trust.

On Sunday, October 7, there will be a choice of three KiltWalks.

The big one, marathon length, will be the 26 miles from Montrose to Carnoustie; there will be a shorter, 13-mile walk starting at the second pit stop and finishing at Carnoustie, or a 10-kilometre walk around Carnoustie for families.

The money raised will be split between Aberlour, Children’s Hospice Association Scotland (CHAS), CLIC Sargeant and Tartan Army Children’s Charity (TACC).

There will be pipers, pit stops provided by charity partners, and live music in the evening with Ted Christopher.

The KiltWalk is a registered Scottish charitable incorporated organisation.
