Where Your Money Goes – The Sandpiper Trust

In 2016, our walkers raised £410.00 for the Sandpiper Trust – here’s what they have planned for those vital funds.

The aim of the Sandpiper Trust is to help save lives in Scotland by improving medical care, particularly in remote and rural areas, by providing appropriate and standardised medical equipment.

This equipment is then used by GPs, community nurses, paramedics and A&E consultants, all of whom operate on a voluntary basis.

The £410.00 raised through the Kiltwalk last year will go towards supporting the Sandpiper Wildcat Project.

The Wildcat project aims to continue the Trust’s good work and save more lives by raising £850,000 in order to create a network of volunteer trained Cardiac Responders in Grampian.

These volunteers will be based at 50 locations throughout the Grampian region.

For every minute without the right emergency treatment, the chances of survival of a cardiac arrest patient falls by 10%, this is why the Sandpiper Wildcat project is so important.

You can raise more much needed funds for this vital project by taking Big Steps with the Kiltwalk.
