Join the Virtual Kiltwalk to back our statue campaign

KiltwalkThe postponed Glasgow, Aberdeen and Edinburgh Kiltwalks have now all been rolled into one Virtual Kiltwalk on the pattern of the recent Dundee one, over the weekend 11 – 13 September, and this is accessible from any part of the country.

The walkers already signed up for the postponed Glasgow one on behalf of the Nelson Mandela Scottish Memorial Foundation will now be taking part in this, and we would be delighted to hear from anyone else able and willing to sign up also.

The advantage of the Virtual walk is that the time, place and nature of the event is entirely up to individual walkers, and it can be a walk of whatever length, a run, a cycle ride, a trampolining session, a swim or something totally different – whatever suits the individual participant. It doesn’t need to be a physical activity at all.  It is open to all ages, and all funds raised will be topped up by 50% by the Tom Hunter Foundation (absorbing any Gift Aid, but still a very useful bonus).

More information and a link to the sign-up page can be found at  and the team page to sponsor existing and any further participants for the NMSMF is at

All funds raised by the time of the cancellation of the original Glasgow event have been paid out (many thanks to the donors), but the same fundraising pages are still live for the rearranged event.

Kilts are not in any way compulsory.
