Dundee Virtual Kiltwalk – Thank you!

We are delighted to share with you the final amount raised from the virtual Dundee Kiltwalk that took place at the weekend, Team Signpost International raised £5,126.41. This total includes the very generous donations that many of you gave, the extremely generous boost from the Hunter Foundation and Gift Aid.

We are absolutely thrilled with this total and we want to say a massive thank you to everyone who supported Team Signpost in the virtual Kiltwalk. We are so grateful for this support which is allowing us to continue our work as we walk alongside disadvantage communities throughout the world, supporting them to be drivers of their own change. Please know that your support is making a difference!

We would like to say a big thank you to the Hunter Foundation and the Kiltwalk organisers. Firstly, the Hunter Foundation, this morning we received the news from Sir Tom Hunter that the Hunter Foundation were no longer boosting donations by 50% but instead 100%. We had already been amazed at the generosity from the Hunter Foundation but the news this morning that they were boosting donations by 100% has blown us away and it is an incredible act of kindness. The 100% boost from the Hunter Foundation to the donations we received will make a big difference to us and we are extremely grateful. Secondly, the organisers of the Kiltwalk, this is the first year that we have been involved in the Kiltwalk and the support and encouragement that we have received from the Kiltwalk team has been outstanding. We know that it has been extremely difficult for them having to change all of their plans this year due to the Coronavirus pandemic, but despite the challenges they have faced they have continued to make sure that charities are supported and can still fundraise through the Kiltwalk. Thank you so much Kiltwalk and we can’t wait to be involved in the full Dundee Kiltwalk next year!

Lastly, we want to thank all of our walkers on Team Signpost. When the Virtual Kiltwalk was launched we decided that Team Signpost would complete 26 miles together as a team, walking separately, together. Each walker took up the challenge of walking a number of miles and between the 7 Signpost walkers, Team Signpost walked 26 miles. These walks took place in Dundee, Broughty Ferry, Tayport and Newtyle. We are so grateful to our virtual Kiltwalkers who gave up their time to raise funds and support for Signpost.

Thank you once again for partnering with Signpost International as we strive for an equitable world where poverty and injustice are eliminated, people thrive and communities flourish.
