SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity is calling on Aberdeen residents to lace up their trainers, don their kilts and sign up to take part in the Kiltwalk on Sunday 3 June.
Participants can choose from a 23, 15 or 6 mile walk through Aberdeen to raise money for the SSAFA Aberdeen branch, who provide support to veterans and their families in the area. From the funds raised the Hunter Foundation will add an extra 40%.
The Kiltwalk is open to all ages and abilities and is a great way to get friends and family together to fundraise for the charity. Sign up by visiting www.thekiltwalk.co.uk
Across Scotland, SSAFA has 22 branches with some 300 trained caseworkers who support veterans and their families in the community. By raising money for SSAFA Aberdeen branch through the Kiltwalk, you will help our caseworkers continue to provide practical, emotional and financial support to the Armed Forces community in need – wherever and whenever they need us.
