ORGANISERS of the Angus Kiltwalk are looking for volunteers to make the 20-mile trip from Montrose to Arbroath on Sunday, August 12, to raise money for children’s charities.

Bruce Ogilvie explained: “We are looking for 200 people from the Angus and Dundee area to join us and raise £50,000 for our amazing charity partners.

“And as always there’s 20 per cent to be donated to local causes nominated by our Kiltwalkers. Teams of five or more can nominate any registered children’s charity or cause to get 50 per cent of the money they raise.”

He continued: “We’ll set off from Montrose, walk past the Montrose Basin and on to the country roads and paths south to Arbroath, home of the Abbey, the Declaration and the Smokie!

“As always we’ll have pipers, pit stops provided by our charity partners and a wee get together at the finish point with some live music.”

Bruce is also looking for businesses to donate raffle prizes or some sponsorship for the walkers. He added: “It would be great if you could enter a company team to take part, remembering that teams can nominate a local children’s charity or children’s group to benefit.”
