Charity walkers hear facts behind projects
Families in Rutherglen welcomed walkers who are meeting the people behind inspirational community projects.
The Great Big Walk is a new initiative supported by comedian Jo Brand to connect people and communities across the UK.
Scottish walkers arrived in Rutherglen to visit Project 31, a National Lottery-funded charity which strengthens community and family through a range of play and recreational activities.
They joined one of their dinosaur play sessions with children, parents and grandparents in Cambuslang Park.
Walker Josh Quigley said: “Over the past week we’ve had the pleasure of meeting lots of different social projects and community groups who are doing great work in their local area.
“It was fantastic to meet staff and families from Project 31, another inspiring project, to learn about the work they are doing to benefit their community.”
Elizabeth Dewar from Project 31 said: “Our visit from the Great Big Walk was a fantastic opportunity to showcase the work that we do with local families.
“It was great to be able to talk to the walkers about the difference that our National Lottery funding is making to the lives of the people we support and to show one of our many activities in action.”
Also receiving a visit from the walkers was Healthy n Happy, who provided a five-star lunch for the walkers.
Five teams of walkers set out from Leeds and headed for different parts of the UK.
