Equal Futures raise over £1000 at the Glasgow Kiltwalk

Posted 19/05/2023

Equal Futures took part in the Glasgow Kiltwalk on the 30 April 2023 and have raised an incredible £1,135!

The Kiltwalk is Scotland’s largest mass walking event with walkers raising money for causes they care about. They host four Kiltwalk events across Scotland every year with Glasgow being the first on Sunday 30 April.

At each Kiltwalk, there are a choice of three distances. The Equal Futures Kiltwalk team chose to do the Wee Wander which is around 3 miles. Among the team were Equal Futures’ project co-ordinators and volunteers. Equal Futures project co-ordinator Donna said this about their experience on the day:

The weather was dreich, but I suppose we are used to that living in Scotland! The atmosphere was amazing, and it is lovely to see all the walkers out raising money for their chosen charity.

Equal Futures are incredibly grateful for all the support they received and want to say a massive thank you to everyone who donated and fundraised by taking part in the walk with them. They would particularly like to thank one of their fundraisers, Chris McFadden, who raised £555. An amazing achievement!

The money raised will help Equal Futures further their goal to promote social inclusion for people with a learning disability and autism, particularly through their befriending scheme and creating circles of support.

But don’t be hanging up your tartan just yet! Equal Futures have set their sights on the Edinburgh Kiltwalk on Sunday 17 September 2023. Registrations will begin this summer so if you want to raise money for Equal Futures then keep your eyes peeled for future announcements.
