When Covid put paid to the Edinburgh Kiltwalk supporters of Busega Scotland in Moray came together to have their own walks. These were big on quality and quantity.
The quality walk was on Saturday 12th September when Moira Middleton and Pam Cooper walked a marathon of 26 miles! The women have known each other all their lives and Moira said, ‘We really enjoyed the walk because we walked our old stomping ground from childhood’. Sore feet and a few aches are the only ill effects! The quantity walks were on the Sunday when 13 folk set out on 5 mile strolls in the fields and forests around the village of Garmouth. As you can see there were kilts and tartan in honour of the Kiltwalk.
The Edinburgh Kiltwalk is a fundraising event that became ‘virtual’ this year because of the virus. The fantastic news is that, to date, over five thousand eight hundred pounds has been raised for Busega Scotland, and the Hunter Foundation will add fifty per cent to the final total.
As ever, it is amazing what can be achieved here, and in Tanzania, when people pull together. Heartfelt thanks to all who have taken part in the walks and have made donations.
