Kiltwalk 2024
Walk or donate to raise vital funds for 
The Open Door

 

The Open Door is thrilled to announce our participation in Edinburgh Kiltwalk 2024!

Are you ready to lace up your trainers and put your best foot forward?

We're inviting you to join us for an unforgettable day of camaraderie, fun, and fundraising! What is the Edinburgh Kiltwalk? It’s a unique charity event that brings together people from all walks of life to raise funds for deserving causes. You can choose from three walking routes to suit your abilities - from a leisurely stroll to a challenging hike.

Event Details:

Date: Sunday, 15th September 2024

Location: Edinburgh, Scotland – precise starting locations for each walking route are on the Kiltwalk website

 

Why Walk for The Open Door? 

We’re dedicated to making a difference by bringing care, love and laughter to the lives of older people, and those who face social isolation in our community. 
 
However, the ongoing cost-of-living crisis and significant cuts in public sector budgets threaten to undermine everything we've worked so hard to build over the past four decades. 

Help us to raise £15,000 to support our Day Services

Every step you take and every penny you raise in the Kiltwalk will directly support our vital services - empowering us to keep transforming lives in our community! 

 

  • Raise £100 and we can provide delicious, nutritious hot meals for our Day Service members for a week, or activity resources for a month 

  • Raise £250 and we can deliver five group activities to improve mobility and mental health 

  • Raise £500 and we can run a fun outing for our Day Service members 

We want to take good care of our team!  As a fundraiser for The Open Door, you’ll get: 

 

  • A limited edition ‘The Open Door Kiltwalk 24’ T-Shirt to wear on the day  

  • A limited edition ‘The Open Door Kiltwalk 24’ reusable Water Bottle to keep you hydrated on the day and beyond 

  • Support from our Fundraising Team - fundraising pack bursting with fundraising tips and tricks 

  • A refreshments pack to help keep up your energy levels
