ENABLE Scotland kiltwalkers raise thousands in Aberdeen

June 8, 2017 Fundraising news

ENABLE Scotland topped them all on Sunday 4 June with the most walkers taking part in the Aberdeen Kiltwalk at Potarch Green which forms part of the stunning Ballogie Estate.

As one of the key beneficiaries of the Kiltwalk, this is the second year ENABLE Scotland is taking part to raise funds for the charity.
Taking part this year was Leanne Robertson from Grampian Housing.
Leanne was the last Kiltwalker to cross the finishing line last year after walking for over 12 hours and she vowed to come back and do it all again this year, only this time she took on the 26 mile mighty stride with a team of 15 of her colleagues from Grampian Housing: “We work for a charity and work alongside several groups in Aberdeen, therefore we were more than happy to take the opportunity to help ENABLE Scotland, who are another great organisation. We all had a great day, a good few blisters but well worth it for the experience.”
Also taking part was Susanne Lovie from the Devornside Branch of ENABLE Scotland along with her team the “The Fiercesum Foursome” – Tracie Lovie, Karen Rose Gardiner, Claire Kennedy and Samantha Phillip.
“We had another amazing day at kilt walk! It’s so well organised and plenty water food stops this is our third kilt walk! Just get out there and take part for such great causes.” 
“The Fiercesum Foursome” will be walking the Great Wall of China in October this year to raise funds for their branch, ENABLE Scotland and other local charities. They decided to use the Kiltwalk as training.
ENABLE Scotland CEO Theresa Shearer said: “I’m delighted to see so many of the ENABLE family here taking part today. We have participants walking for ENABLE Scotland in the Mighty Stride, the Big Stroll and the Wee Wander. Our members, supporters and staff have come out in force today to raise funds for people who have learning disabilities and they should be hugely proud of themselves for what they have achieved.”
The Kiltwalk continues in Dundee, 20 August and Edinburgh 17 September and ENABLE Scotland will have walkers taking part in both of these events.
