Moderator to Don Kilt for Charity Walk

Tuesday February 23

Lauren McFarland took part in the Kiltwalk 2020 to raise funds for Christian Aid.


The Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland, the Rt Rev Dr Martin Fair, is donning his kilt and supporting Christian Aid at Scotland’s virtual Kiltwalk event in April.

This popular fundraising event gives Christian Aid Scotland supporters the opportunity to get active in their local area while raising funds for Christian Aid.  The Kiltwalk takes place over the weekend of April 23-25. You decide which day and time suits.

You can take on any local Kiltwalk inspired challenge: go for a walk (short or long), cycle, skip, jump on a trampoline or take the family on a scavenger hunt! It’s up to you. While it isn’t compulsory to wear a kilt, the moderator has indicated that he will be wearing his.

Dr Fair said: "Walking, sporting the kilt, Christian Aid... what’s not to like? I’m under starter’s orders and I can’t wait!"

With group events still not possible the Kiltwalk is a way to fundraise individually and safely, and all donations will be topped up by an extra 50% thanks to the Hunter Foundation. 

Dr Fair added: “Though by necessity it will be different this year, the Kiltwalk is more important than ever. It’s vital that we find ways to support development and charitable organisations when so much of their usual fundraising has been impossible.”

If you are interested in joining Christian Aid on the Kiltwalk, sign up at https://www.thekiltwalk.co.uk/events and select Christian Aid as your chosen charity.
