Forth Valley Sensory Centre
Can you join our team of Sensory Strollers for the Edinburgh Kiltwalk and help us to raise much needed funds for people with sight and hearing loss across Forth Valley? Raise just £60 and we’ll even pay your registration fee!
As well as a great day out (perhaps with friends or colleagues!) you’ll get one of our fabulous Forth Valley Sensory Centre t-shirts (modelled below by walkers Kirsty, Jacquie and David) and thanks to Edinburgh Kiltwalk sponsor Arnold Clark, you also have the chance to win a car!
Centre Manager and Kiltwalker, Jacquie Winning said:
“The Kiltwalk is a great way to support smaller, local charities like ours. Not only is it a fun, healthy event which you can do as part of a group, thanks to The Hunter Foundation, we get 140 per cent of any funds raised, so bring in £100 in sponsorship and we recieve £140 which will go directly to supporting people with sight and hearing loss in this area.”
Jacquie will be guiding David Black, the Centre Cook along the route and they will be joined by volunteer Alan Hamilton and Kirsty Craig who brings her son along to the Centre to join in deaf groups and classes. Kirsty will be doing the full 26 miles on 16th September.
Speaking about why she chose to undertake the Edinburgh Kiltwalk on behalf of Forth Valley Sensory Centre, Kirsty said:
“It’s such a great place to come along to. It’s easy to access, the cafe and garden are great and we can get the support we need as a family with a deaf child. I’m a regular walker, covering four or five miles at a time. This has given me a target to go for and I am looking forward to the challenge.”
You can add your support by joining our ‘Sensory Stroller’ team at this link. Or, if you prefer not to walk but would like to add a donation, you can sponsor Kirsty via her Everyday Hero link or our team including David here.
