Funds will be allocated as follows:
With some 400 charities – 75% children’s charities – having already walked in the Glasgow and Aberdeen Kiltwalks raising almost £1m* to date, funds raised are set to soar as Scottish charities reap the Obama dinner benefits as Sir Tom Hunter, founder of the Hunter Foundation explained;
“This is a fantastic opportunity for charities across Scotland to have a great day out at the Kiltwalk, raise much needed funds and get at least a 40% boost to their fundraising!
“Personally I’d like to thank everyone who helped raise these amazing funds by supporting the Obama dinner event – it clearly shows the spirit of Scotland; we care always for those most in need in our society and believe fundamentally in opportunity for all.”
