Dust off your best tartan and take part in this years virtual Kiltwalk!

Impact Arts relies on the generosity of our supporters to help people and communities transform their lives through creativity and the arts.

Do you fancy dawning some tartan and making Impact Arts your charity of choice for the 2021 Kiltwalk on 23rd-25th April? With your support, we can continue to provide creative and artistic programmes for children, young people, older people and communities across Scotland.

In light of the coronavirus, Impact Arts are working remotely to help vulnerable children, young people, older people and communities across Scotland through these difficult times. The threat that isolation and loneliness can have on the health and wellbeing of our participants – our neighbours, friends and family – is very real. Your donation could provide a lifeline for some of the most vulnerable people in our society.

For young people in particular, their mental health/wellbeing is deteriorating, their education opportunities are narrowing, their employment opportunities are dwindling and their hopes and aspirations are suffering too.

Fundraising £100 will ensure 1 young person has all the digital and data access needed to engage with our programmes and with school/employment support.

Together with your help, we can work to change this!

You can take on any Kiltwalk Inspired challenge you wish – go for a walk (of any length), a run, cycle, jump on a trampoline...you decide on your challenge!

This year The Hunter Foundation will also be very kindly be adding a 50% top up on all your fundraising too - so for every £1 you raise, they will add an extra 50p!

To qualify for this boost you must set up your online fundraising page during the Kiltwalk registration process; they will provide you with a link when you register.
