Our new beginning !!

An exciting new chapter is happening...the WALK WITH SCOTT family has now become  WALK WITH SCOTT FOUNDATION! which is a registered Charity

Although our aims are still to promote health and well-being in our areas,

we hope to hold fundraising events for The Foundation by the means of Walking, hosting Ceilidhs, dinner dances and coffee mornings, etc..., and then, in turn, 

   use the funds raised to help support local charities and causes. 

 SUCCESS !!

Our 1st project of the year was to raise money to buy Memory Pods  for all Care Homes and Day Centres in East Lothian, and this was a huge success with us raising enough funds to allow us to buy 5 fantastic RemPods.

Along with the RemPods we also supplied hundreds of hand knitted and crocheted 'Twiddlemuffs' to dementia sufferers across East Lothian - with thanks to donations from local knitters.

We have also supported Xtreme Walkies on their massive fundraising cycle across Iceland, Kinship Carers and Headway 

Overall a terrific year for our Foundation so far.

We are now moving onto our next community projects...

There are a limited number of tables of 10 are remaining at only £550 (£55 per head) which includes your three course meal and an unforgettable evening of quality comedy entertainment. All three speakers are hilarious if somewhat close to the bone from time to time .
