CHRISTIAN AID / KILT WALK 2021

For 2021, Christian Aid has joined up with The Virtual Kiltwalk. This is a unique way of charity fundraising and The Hunter Foundation will add 50% to the total raised by each participant.

As our Christian Aid Coordinator, I have signed up to do a Corstorphine Circular Walk which is 5miles, about the same distance as the Forth Bridge Walk. [Along the old Corstorphine railway to Carricknowe, follow tram route to Broomhouse, back North to the Church carpark].

On Saturday 24 April, I will leave the Church carpark at 2pm with 5 other walkers. If you wish to join us that would be great. There are no upper or lower age limits. However, please let me know beforehand for COVID purposes.

I will ensure that all Covid-19 requirements which are in force on the day of the walk are followed.

If you wish to donate, you can do so either.

On the JustGiving sponsorship page for online donations.

Or by sending donations to my home address, cheques made out to St Ninian’s Church.

To date, £345 has been donated.

Your sponsorship money will be used by Christian Aid to help communities in the developing world, especially in relation to climate change. Together we can STOP this climate chaos.

Thank you in advance for your support
