Kiltwalk making fullreturn


Monklands’ Kiltwalker­s will have the chance to put their best foot forward for the charities of their choice next year as the event makes its full physical return.

Scotland’s favourite mass participat­ion charity event will take place in Glasgow, Aberdeen, Dundee and Edinburgh in 2022, with a virtual version also going ahead to ensure the Kiltwalk is as accessible as possible.

In 2021, the Kiltwalk raised a record £8.4m for 1270 Scottish charities at a time when many have been struggling to fundraise as a result of the pandemic. Every penny raised by Kiltwalker­s is topped up 50 per cent by The Hunter Foundation.

Paul Cooney, Kiltwalk CEO, said: “There is nothing like gathering together as a community, so we want our Kiltwalk Heroes to get a wee bit of tartan on and stride out for the charities closest to their hearts.”

Full details regarding the 2022 walks will be published at a later date, with registrati­on set to open in the coming weeks; for more informatio­n, visit www. thekiltwal­
