Jenny walked 15 miles along Fife’s beautiful Coastal Path on 3rd July as part of the Dundee Virtual Kiltwalk. She was walking to raise funds for the three-year Federation project, Empowering Girls in Nepal. Jenny, who will be 80 in a few weeks’ time, unfortunately walked most of the way in the rain. However, she remained undaunted and although she initially intended to take two days over the walk she completed it in one day. She had taken the train to North Queensferry and walked to Kinghorn, stopping en route in Dalgety Bay. Fellow member, Val, went to meet Jenny with some words of encouragement, socially distancing of course!
Jenny has raised over £432 for her walk which has been doubled to £864 by Sir Tom Hunter of the Hunter Foundation. The money will be used to help vulnerable girls in Nepal who have experienced rape or trafficking as they rebuild their lives. They will be empowered through education and training into gainful employment, enabling them to make a positive contribution to society.
