Lesley Giudici Fundraising Manager " I have to say everyone at the GGG has been totally overwhelmed by the phenomenal amount you have raised from the Virtual Kiltwalk we would never have imagined it would have raised as much as it has. Overall, we were just short of £18,500 in total from all our Kiltwalkers which should mean a total for us of nearly £27,500 which really is amazing. We are so grateful to you all."
The Provincial Grand Master Brother Andrew Mushet would like to thank all the brethren and families for their support on raising this fantastic amount for this worthy cause.
