The Importance of The Kiltwalk

The Kiltwalk is back and this year's event couldn't be more important to charities like us and to the people of Scotland who rely on our support.

The Kiltwalk is an event like no other. 

Thanks to the generosity of Sir Tom Hunter, one of Scotland’s great philanthropists, all fundraising is topped up by 50%. So, if you take part and raise £200, Sir Tom makes that £300! 

It’s an incredible display of goodwill, empathy and understanding. Sir Tom visits many charities and his team at The Kiltwalk speak with charities on a daily basis. They completely get the challenges we face and they totally understand how important we are to the people of Scotland. 

In turn, this level of understanding and generosity is greatly appreciated by charities of all sizes across the country. 

These are very testing times for the charity sector, very testing times for all of us. 

If you are considering fundraising for Pancreatic Cancer Action Scotland this year then I hope you will consider taking on the Virtual Kiltwalk on the weekend of 23rd-25th April. 

You can walk, you can run, or you can just have fun. 

You can take on any Kiltwalk inspired challenge you wish – go for a walk (of any length), a cycle, jump on a trampoline, or even arrange a family scavenger hunt! You decide on your challenge and as long as you’re raising funds for Pancreatic Cancer Action Scotland – anything goes! 

We’ll send a PCAS t-shirt for you to wear and we’d encourage you to enter the spirit of The Kiltwalk by donning a kilt, wearing a tartan ribbon or fancy dress. 

Have fun and raise funds. We’d really appreciate your support as we have big plans in Scotland to make the 2020’s the decade of change for pancreatic cancer. Together we can make a difference. 

As a thank you for your amazing support, we have 40 FREE places for the Virtual Kiltwalk. If you are interested please email [email protected] to discuss taking part.
