The Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland joined Christian Aid staff and supporters at their ‘power walk’ on Saturday.

The annual walk around Whitelee Windfarm in East Renfrewshire, the UK’s largest onshore windfarm, is both a fundraiser and raises awareness of Christian Aid Scotland’s campaign for Scotland to transition to a zero-emission economy.

Lucy Kirkland, events fundraising officer for Christian Aid Scotland, said: “The sun was shining on Saturday at Christian Aid’s annual Power Walk at Whitelee Windfarm. We were joined by the Church of Scotland Moderator Rt Rev Susan Brown and over 70 people from 10 different churches. A fantastic day was had by all!”

Whitelee, on Eaglesham Moor outside Glasgow has 215 turbines capable of generating enough electricity for nearly 300,000 homes.

Christian Aid is campaigning for the Scottish Government’s climate change bill to commit the country to achieving net-zero emissions by 2050.
