A staggering £1 million has been raised so far ahead of this year’s Glasgow Kiltwalk - before a step has even been taken.

A total of 14,700 walkers already signed up for the 2019 events have collectively raised £1,162,000 for Scottish charities.

Walkers to date have raised an incredible £830,000, with a further 40% - £332,000- added courtesy of Sir Tom Hunter and The Hunter Foundation.

This year’s Royal Bank of Scotland Glasgow Kiltwalk, which takes place on Sunday, 28 April, is set to be the biggest ever, with over 600 charities in Glasgow and the west set to benefit from the generosity of Scots.

More than 12,000 walkers will set out between Glasgow Green and Loch Lomond, taking on one of three distances – 24 miles, 15 miles or six miles.

Kiltwalk chief executive Paul Cooney said: “A huge debt of gratitude must go to our Kiltwalkers for their efforts raising such an incredible amount of money so far.

"This is a hugely impressive figure which will make a real and lasting difference to charities.

“A record-breaking number of walkers will be taking part in Glasgow on April 28, and there’s still time to sign up!”
