SIR Andy Murray has urged Scots to don their tartan for this year’s Kiltwalk.
In a video message, the Dunblane tennis star shows his support for the charity event, which raised an incredible £2.3 million last year.
Money raised by participants in the tartan trek is topped up by 40% by The Hunter Foundation and given out to charities of the walkers’ choosing.
Last year was the Kiltwalk’s biggest year ever, with around 14,000 walkers taking part.
Chief executive Paul Cooney said: “Huge thanks to the inspirational Andy Murray for his ringing endorsement of the Kiltwalk and we hope it encourages you to get your kilt on and sign up for one of the four walks this year.
“We want the 2018 Kiltwalk to be even bigger this year with more walkers than ever before. We want to surpass the phenomenal £2.5m raised for Scottish charities by walkers last year and with your help we can do that.”
Street Soccer founder David Duke also recorded a video message to back the event, which our columnist Ross King is an ambassador for.
