Now that the physical Edinburgh Kiltwalk has been replaced by the all-inclusive "Virtual Kiltwalk Weekend" (which ANYONE can join in with), I have a wee problem:
All of the obvious "do-at-your-leisure" activities require some sort of physical effort (which is just not possible for me on my own).
So, as I'm unable to raise funds for FareShare myself, I am encouraging others to take part and fundraise for FareShare in my place (or simply to donate to FareShare via this page).
Getting involved yourself is super-easy. Simply sign up at:
Selecting "FareShare" as your chosen charity to fundraise for of course :)
Registration costs just £12 for adults; and £6 for children (a huge reduction from the normal registration fees - for this very important one-off event).
In return for your registration fee, you will receive a virtual fundraising pack that contains everything you need to make your own #VirtualKiltwalkWeekend event rather special indeed.
If you simply wish to donate, without actually signing up, just click the green "Give Now" button on the right of this page. The Hunter Foundation will add another 50% to your own donation (so if, for example, you donated £10 - FareShare would actually receive £15).
Think of FareShare as a "charity wholesaler". They supply surplus/in-date food to hundreds of other, much smaller, charities throughout Scotland (and over 10,000 throughout the UK). Food that is then used to feed some of the most-vulnerable people in the nation. Probably vulnerable people in your very own community too.
And now, more than ever, feeding the elderly, the very young, the sick and disabled is rather more urgent than it ever has been.
So if you would like to help FareShare feed the vulnerable, please hit the big green "Give Now" button on the right .
Thank you SO very much.
