Glasgow Kiltwalkers Move Into High Gear

Platinum sponsor Arnold Clark handed over new cars to lucky walkers

Judy Murray and Sir Tom Hunter were on hand for the handover.

Three walkers who took on the biggest-ever Royal Bank of Scotland Kiltwalk in Glasgow are celebrating after they each won a brand-new car, thanks to our Platinum Sponsors Arnold Clark.

Catherine Haldane from Parkhouse, Andy Stott from Dumbarton and Nadia Ucci from Largs, who took part in the 26-mile Mighty Stride and 15-mile Big Stroll events, walked alongside 13,000 Kiltwalk Heroes, raising £3.5 million for their chosen charities.

They were chosen at random by Arnold Clark, who handed over a Kia Rio to each winner at their head office in Hillington.

Catherine completed the Big Stroll for Princess Royal Maternity & Neonatal Unit, as a thank you to the staff who looked after her prematurely-born daughter, who was delivered at 26 weeks. Andy also took part in the Big Stroll, raising funds for Cash for Kids and Nadia took on the Mighty Stride for Ardgowan Hospice in Gourock, raising funds in memory of a colleague.

Eddie Hawthorne, Chief Executive and Group Managing Director at Arnold Clark, said: “We always want do our bit to encourage people to take part in this great event.

“We’re thrilled to be supporting the Kiltwalk for yet another year and we’re even happier to be able to supply three lucky winners with a fantastic Kia Rio.”

Everyone signed up for one of this year's Kiltwalk events is in with the chance to win a car.

With a brand-new car being donated by Europe’s largest independent car dealer at every Royal Bank of Scotland Kiltwalk this year, there are still three more opportunities to win in 2019.

Kiltwalk CEO, Paul Cooney, said: “We are so proud of Glasgow’s Kiltwalkers each year, who take part in their masses, raising money for charitable causes close to their hearts. We are very thankful to our platinum sponsor, Arnold Clark, who blow us away every year with their incredible generosity, and to each walker who chooses to pull on their walking boots and take part.”

To be in with the chance to win your own car, sign up for our next events in Aberdeen on 2 June, then St. Andrews to Dundee on 18 August, or Edinburgh on 15 September.
