Here at Home-Start West Lothian we are looking to recruit supporters to help us fundraise through the Virtual Kiltwalk 23-25th April 2021.
We can offer you one of our free charity places and a cracking Home-Start West Lothian T shift if you can committee to raising £75 for us. Every penny you raise will be topped up 50% by The Hunter Foundation so it really can go a long way to helping us keep helping families
Home-Start West Lothian has been helping families in our community over 20 years. We provide assistance on a wide range of things to help parents going through a difficult time and to make sure every child has the best start in life.

Last year our amazing supporters raised over £5000 for Home-Start West Lothian. Aimee Harris walked for us last year for the second time to help put something back into her local community. She said.
“I initially heard about the kilt walk through my work, Arnold Clark Car & Van Rental. A group of my colleagues were signing up so I thought I’d take part too as it seemed like a challenge and it’d be great fun” Aimee adds “ I chose Home-Start as it is a great charity that helps families who are going through a rough patch and need an extra helping hand, within West Lothian. I have done the Kilt Walk for home-start twice, raising over £1500 in total for them and I’d say if you were thinking about it just to go for it.”
Last year was very different for us all with all the COVID restrictions and levels. This year’s Virtual Kiltwalk is likely to have similar conditions but that doesn’t need to stop you fundraising, says another Kiltwalker and Home-Start Trustee, Veronica Smith.
“My friend Margaret and I decided to walk along the historical shale trail starting at Middleton Hall and then walking along the union canal in sight of the shale bings of Broxburn. Which was felt safe for us to do with the right precautions and it was great exercise too”
“The best bit was when Tam the Piping Bam turned up to pipe us home for the last bit. Tam was also doing the Kiltwalk so it was amazing to have him play just for us. It was also a good excuse for a few nice cakes at the end too.”
