Partick’s Kiltwalkers make a day of it

Partick’s KiltwalkersEmployees from Partick Housing Association participated in the Glasgow Kiltwalk 2015 which took place on Sunday 12th April.

The Kiltwalk is a charity which organises sponsored, kilted walks to raise funds for children’s charities across Scotland.

The group of 12 employees, who called themselves the Partick Puffers n’ Panters, walked 15 miles from Clydebank to Balloch and raised a substantial amount in sponsorship. They were walking for Calum’s Cabin which is based on the Isle of Bute and is a retreat for children who are suffering from cancer.

Housing officer Anne Jones, who coordinated the group from Partick, said: “I’ve taken part in quite a few charity fundraising events in recent years. I enjoy the challenge and it’s great to be part of something which supports worthwhile causes. When I noticed the annual Kiltwalk was due to take place, I decided to encourage my colleagues at PHA to take part. It was a great opportunity for a bit of team building and together we were able to raise lots of sponsorship money.”

Fellow participant Anne Esler, repairs clerk at PHA, added: “It was a dawdle, a mere stroll along the canal.”

Well done to everyone who took part on the day.
