An enthusiastic group of children and staff from Kibble’s Arran Villa took on the mighty Kiltwalk challenge to show support for Who Cares? Scotland. The group joined a record breaking 13,000 people walking the scenic route to raise funds for hundreds of great causes.
The team of four excited young kids and seven adults donned their tartan kilts, trainers and their big smiles to take on the Wee Wander – a six mile stretch from Levengrove Park to Balloch. They were among 1000 people supporting Who Cares? Scotland – child and youth care advocacy charity supporting care experienced young people. High praise has has been given by all across Kibble and the kids will be coming round the campus asking staff to give what they can for this worthwhile cause.
There may have been a few blistered toes as the young group made their way along the route but the encouragement amongst all the tartan clad walkers kept spirits high. Along the way the kids were elated when they met all the furry mascots, patted dogs in tartan jackets and even spotted deer swimming in the loch trying to catch a glimpse of the action!
As the finish line came into sight, the group held hands and crossed the line together. Recognition of a great achievement and the importance of teamwork. Queue shiny medals, pipers, highland dancing and puffy candy floss, and the celebrations got into full swing. It was a fantastic day of achievements, friendships and happy memories. We’re now on the countdown to next year’s Kiltwalk and the next charity challenge – go team Kibble!
