A message of thanks from Sheila.


We would like to say a huge thank you to all those who participated in the two Kiltwalk events during 2021 – the Virtual Kiltwalk over the weekend of 23rd to 25th April and the Live Kiltwalk in Glasgow on the 26th September 2021 in support of the Vine Trust. A total of £24,500 was raised over the two events which will be used to help support our core costs in the UK.
