Although I have never experienced homelessness I was a single parent for a few years and I understand how wrong choices or circumstances can lead to dark times.

Fiona is one of our wonderful heroes walking for Bethany at this years Edinburgh Kiltwalk on 15 September.

My reason for doing the Kiltwalk for Bethany is that as part of the Care Van team, I can see what amazing work Bethany do for the homeless in Edinburgh. I coordinate the team from Currie Kirk and they are always keen to support this cause.

Over the years I have seen from the Care Van and the night shelters that there is a positivity and real care for homeless people on our streets, Bethany Christian Trust truly care and show God’s Love through their commitment.

The Kiltwalk takes place in all major cities over Scotland and is a way for you to raise funds for the charity of your choice. The best bit – every penny you raise will be topped up an additional 40%, meaning for every £100 raised, Bethany will receive £140!

If you are feeling inspired, we would love for you to consider walking for Bethany Christian Trust this year. Learn more about how to sign up!
