Water walkers’ cash splash


Walkers, cyclists and drivers offered plenty of support to water-carrying Virtual Kiltwalk fundraiser­s from Kilmartin, Ford and Glassary church.

By way of carrying water on a relay system from the loch at Barnluasga­n to the church in Kilmartin, the aim was to raise money for Christian Aid towards small scale, low cost solutions to communitie­s effected by climate change.

The hardy team of water walkers set off on their 10km (six-mile) trek at lunchtime on Sunday April 25, raising awareness of the climate change crisis as well as cash along the way.

Church treasurer Caroline Waterhouse said: ‘We raised a grand total of £1,107.37, inclusive of gift aid and the Hunter Foundation’s generous 50 per cent top-up to any sponsorshi­p raised.

‘Thanks to all who participat­ed and helped on the day – and to everyone who offered support to our walkers along the road.’
