The Kilt Walk (Spirit Aid)
13 May 2022

Thank you so much to everyone who attended the Kiltwalk on Sunday 24th April 2022 – it was a great turnout and an amazing day.

ECG partnered with Spirit Aid this year as we wanted to get involved in their efforts to help out children and young people within our local communities and across the world.

Spirit Aid need our support to make a difference. They are a Scottish Humanitarian Relief Organisation dedicated to alleviating the suffering of children and young people whose lives have been affected by poverty, neglect, abuse, lack of opportunity, humanitarian crisis or blighted by war.

From the Gorbals to Malawi, Spirit Aid try to reach the people who daily face poverty or desperation, oppression or hopelessness, people who suffer mental health issues or those that end up on the streets of our cities here in Scotland.

Spirit Aid have been around for almost 20 years and have supported children and young people at home and abroad, helping to improve their health, education and opportunities. They transcend national and cultural boundaries to help give young people hope for their future. Sadly in recent years, the need within our local communities has grown, but with our help maybe we can make a difference.

To this end, we supported Spirit Aid through the hugely successful Kilt Walk (Wee Wander). The Wee Wander was a 3 mile stroll as part of the main Kilt Walk that started at Lomond Shores and made its way out to the finish line at Balloch.

This event was absolutely ideal for all the family of all ages and ECG staff in attendance brought along their partners, family, kids, grandchildren, nieces and nephews.

Following our staff’s individual donations, the Company also generously supported with a further donation based on these funds raised – raising a grand total of £1,200 for this very worthwhile charity!

We have had amazing feedback from everyone at Spirit Aid who are so grateful for the support of ECG. It really means a lot for the company to have such a great team who can make such a different within our local communities.
