Magnificent seven raise £3,000 for ELCAP

Seven ELCAP supporters took part in the Edinburgh Kiltwalk on Sunday 18 September 2022, raising in the region of £3,000 for the charity.  Walkers covered distances of 4, 14 and 21 miles across Scotland’s capital.

Kate Flory, a member of ELCAP’s Board of Trustees, stepped out in this key fundraising event, along with her husband and two children.

Support Practitioner, Stacey Duncan, went the distance for ELCAP, along with her niece Caitlin.

ELCAP Chief Executive, Paul White, was the final member of the charity’s magnificent seven.

Celebrating the success of ELCAP’s participation, White said:

“The Kiltwalk is a much loved and superbly well organised event on Scotland’s fundraising calendar.  I was delighted when Kate and her family and Stacey and her niece gave up their Sunday to raise funds to support the work of our charity.  Many thanks to all of them.

As a team, we raised around £2,000.  Thanks to the generosity of The Hunter Foundation, the donations we received will be topped up by 50%, which will take our fundraising total to £3,000.

Every penny raised will be made available to our Community Coordinator, Rebecca Craig.  Rebecca will use the funds to ensure that the individuals ELCAP supports are able to make the most of the activities, events and opportunities available in our community.”

Five thousand Edinburgh Kiltwalkers raised £1.42 million for 500 charities.  The funds were boosted by a £710,000 top-up from The Hunter Foundation.
