More than eleven thousands Scots took part in the fundraiser this weekend
Scots hit roads and paths across the country this weekend to raise vital funds for charity.
More than 11,000 kind-hearted people took part in this weekend’s Virtual Kiltwalk Weekend, raising all-important funds for charities across the country.
The event, which kicked off on Friday and ran until Sunday (23 to 25 April), saw participants heading out all over the country in socially-distanced activities including walking, running, dancing and even tight-roping, all in aid of charity.
1,050 Scottish charities badly hit by the pandemic are set to benefit from the event, with more than £4 million already raised. £2.7 million by the walkers and £1.4 million from Sir Tom Hunter. Each and every penny raised by participants receives a 50% top up from The Hunter Foundation.
Sir Tom Hunter said: “It’s fantastic to see so many people getting involved in the Virtual Kiltwalk Weekend, making such a big effort to help those who need it most. The people of Scotland never fail to amaze me with their kindness.”
Fundraising deadline for the Virtual Kiltwalk Weekend is Monday 3 May. For more information on The Kiltwalk, visit the website.
