Total was matched by Tom Hunter
Edinburgh Kiltwalk fundraising closed at midnight last night (28 September) with a bumper £2,136,590 going out to help 500 different charities.
A total of 5,000 Kiltwalkers raised a whopping £1.42 million. This sum was topped up by £710,000 from The Hunter Foundation, securing a grand total of £2.137 million for 500 charities across Scotland.
Sir Tom Hunter said: “The Kiltwalk Kindness of people in Edinburgh and the East was there for all to see on September 18th. Wearing a bit of tartan, they walked around the capital from Bingham Medway to BT Murrayfield and I am proud that our 5,000 Kiltwalkers raised this phenomenal amount to help so many Scottish Charities.
“It makes me very proud to know that all this fundraising will make a huge difference in these difficult economic times. It was great to be back together in Edinburgh after three years due to Covid.
“We thank every member of the Kiltwalk community, our headline sponsors Royal Bank of Scotland and Arnold Clark, Gold sponsor Johnston Carmichael and LIDL and all our sponsors, staff and Kiltie volunteers for their unwavering support.”
