The TACC Kiltwalk has provided a step change in the way that TACC supports Scottish charities.
Already in 2010 we have been able to make over £15,000 in Kiltwalk grants to the following:
Hopscotch - £6,000
Chris Turner organised an alternative Kiltwalk, from Glen Coe to (and up) Ben Nevis, for 30 supporters. TACC invited the group to choose another children's charity to receive 50% of what they raised, and they chose Hopscotch.
The charity provides a respite holiday centre for disadvantaged children.
Childline - £1,000
BDAS entered the largest group in the Kiltwalk and chose Childline to receive 50% of what they raised.
Naomi House - £3,000
The first Kiltwalk in England was organised by Jim Finlay, and we hope will be copied many times - Scots around the World raising money for local children.
Naomi House is a hospice in Hampshire
Juvenile Diabetes Shetland - £2,350
Shetland Salmon TA raised nearly £5,000 in the Kiltwalk, and chose JDS to receive 50%
Link Community Development - £950
LCD support children in Malawi, and were nominated by a Kiltwalk team led by Fiona Leishman in Glasgow
Rosslyn School - £1,275
Kirkcaldy Tartan Army were one of the first clubs to support the Kiltwalk and one of the largest teams. They nominated a local special school.
Dyslexia Action - £1,336
A group of families from Dundee did the Kiltwalk in relay to support DA.
