Over the weekend of 24 - 25 April 2021 we will be raising funds for Open Arms Community Support and we would love you to get involved!
This community organisation has done a phenomenal amount of work within our communities in the past 12 months; providing hot meals, chippy suppers and practical help to those in need - all through an army of volunteers, of which we are a part of. Their aim is to support the well being of our communities, fundraising for local causes and providing a Respite Garden at Dalraddy Holiday Park for families living with Dementia and Mental Health.
Through the 2021 Kiltwalk, Open Arms has a team of fundraisers and we are looking forward to taking part. Every penny we raise will be topped up by 50% thanks to the generosity of Sir Tom Hunter and The Hunter Foundation. Thank you for all your sponsorship and bookings!
How Can You Take Part?
Sponsorship - Pete will be running a marathon from sunset on Saturday night to Sunrise on Sunday morning. He'll start his run from the Respite Garden at Dalraddy and eventually finish at Loch Vaa near Aviemore. You can sponsor him here and all donations are greatly appreciated.
Watch the Sunrise on 25 April - Lets get as many people watching the sunrise on the same day as possible!
Promise yourself that on Sunday 25 April you will get up for the sunrise and start your day with the dawn chorus. It really is a glorious way to start the day, heading outside whilst the world is still silent, sitting patiently and hearing the first birds wake and start singing. Depending on where you live you may see wildlife waking up such as Brown Hare and deer, along with the springtime sounds of Oystercatchers - either way it will be a special event.
All we ask is if you take part in our weekend of fundraising by getting up for the sunrise, please pop some money in the pot. Share your own images with us of sunrise by tagging them with #kiltwalksunrise.
Sunrise Guided Forest Bathing Session - Cath is a qualified Nature and Forest Therapy Guide and we invite you to join us on a guided Forest Bathing session at Loch Vaa, Aviemore on Sunday morning. We'll be a small group of at maximum 8 people and the session will last approx 1 and 1/2 hours.
Booking essential via the website, £18pp.
