After a tough year, we’re pleased to let you know that the Kiltwalk will be back and bigger than ever before in 2021!
Grab your walking boots, because Kiltwalk are offering more ways than ever to fundraise for your chosen charities. After the success of their 2020, virtual event, they’ll be hosting another between 23rd – 25th April. And, if you really want to go big, they’re putting on a physical event on August 29th in Glasgow!Learn more
In place of the Wee Wanders, Big Strolls and Mighty Strides we’re used to, the Virtual Kiltwalk Weekend took place between 11th – 13th September where Kiltwalkers walked, cycled and even ran to raise money for their chosen charities.
Kiltwalkers from all over Scotland raised a huge £2.5 million. But that’s not all – The Hunter Foundation, backed by Sir Tom Hunter, gave every donation a 50% boost, taking the total to a massive £5 million!
The charity with the most donations for 2020 was
Calum’s Cabin, whose supporters raised £150,000. They provide respite for families who have children with cancer, in a tranquil countryside retreat in Bute where they can spend quality time together.
Arnold Clark has proudly sponsored the Kiltwalk since 2016, and since then, employees have raised over £440,000 for their chosen charities. We plan to raise even more next year!
Fleet Services Business Manager, Leanne Hutchison began her fundraising journey eight years ago after losing one of her best friends to cancer and has been fundraising by taking part in the Great Scottish Runs and the Kiltwalk.
In 2020, her team completed the full 24.5-mile Kiltwalk distance, walking from the Falkirk Wheel to The Kelpies, and making their way back through a very rainy Kirkintilloch in Glasgow.
The team raised £1373.99 for the Beatson Cancer Charity in memory of those close to them and are already setting their sights on next year’s event.
