Walking for charity!
Made In Scotland were delighted to take part in what was a record breaking KiltWalk for 2019. With around 13,000 walkers taking part in this year and an estimated £3.5 million raised, this surpassed any previous attendance or funds raised.
The team set off for the “Wee Wander” at 11am on Sunday, and all arrived safe and sound at the finishing line around 1pm, where we then enjoyed some fantastic entertainment and a well-earned meal.
As well as being a great day out for the team (with some surprisingly good weather), our main reason for taking part was in support of our chosen charity Spirit Aid. Spirit Aid are a Scottish humanitarian relief organisation dedicated to alleviating the suffering of children and young people whose lives have been affected by poverty, neglect, abuse, lack of opportunity and much more. As well as doing some great work across the globe, Spirit Aid do so much for children and families in the local communities across Scotland and Made In Scotland have been inspired by the work carried out by Spirit Aid and their team.
The KiltWalk raises and estimated £5000 every year for Spirit Aid and we hope this year we can even surpass this number. Donations are available via the following link https://glasgowkiltwalk2019.everydayhero.com/uk/made-in-scotland if you still wish to donate to our walkers.
All in all a fantastic day out, for a fantastic cause and we would recommend all to get on board for The KiltWalk 2020 and help make a difference to your chosen charity!
