ELCAP’s magnificent seven step out in the Edinburgh Kiltwalk

Seven supporters are going the extra mile for ELCAP, by taking part in the Edinburgh Kiltwalk, which will be held in Scotland’s capital on Sunday 18 September 2022.

Stacey Duncan, a Support Practitioner in Haddington, is taking part in The Wee Wander with her niece.  You can sponsor Stacey and her niece via this link.

Kate Flory, a member of ELCAP’s Board of Trustees, is taking part in The Big Stroll, with her husband and two children.  You can sponsor Kate and her family via this link.

Paul White, ELCAP’s Chief Executive, is taking part in The Mighty Stride.  You can sponsor Paul via this link.

Looking ahead to the event, ELCAP’s Business Manager, Lara Ritchie said:

“I’m delighted that a team of walkers have agreed to step out for our organisation at the Edinburgh Kiltwalk.  Like most charities, fundraising is important to ELCAP – it can provide the icing on the cake of our life-changing work.

The COVID-19 lockdown was difficult for all of us, but it was especially tough for individuals with learning disabilities. The activities they enjoyed came to an abrupt halt, while they were no longer able to see the important people in their lives.

While we can’t change the past, we are putting our best foot forward in the Edinburgh Kiltwalk to get things back on track for the individuals we support.

Every penny we raise will be committed to recreational and social activities which bring people together. After being isolated for so long, everyone deserves a good time in good company.

The more money we raise, the more of a difference we can make.  And the good news is that the donations we receive will be topped up by 50%, thanks to the generosity of Sir Tom Hunter and The Hunter Foundation.”

Kiltwalk events were held online in 2020 and 2021, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.  ELCAP took part in the last physical Edinburgh Kiltwalk in 2019, raising over £6,000 in the process.
