It’s Good 2 Give

Sponsoring a Kiltwalk Pit Stop for the first time in 2018, It’s Good 2 Give support young cancer patients across the whole of Scotland and their families in a very special way.

It’s Good 2 Give run the award winning Ripple Retreat, where the families of someone going through cancer treatment can stay for some well deserved, peaceful time with each other. They also provide practical support in hospital wards to families; like snacks, parent packs, ironing vouchers and other special requests from medical staff.

Every walker at Kiltwalk Edinburgh will be welcomed to It’s Good 2 Give’s Pit Stop at Gypsy Brae. You can learn about the Ripple Retreat and how it has made such an amazing impact from some of of their amazing volunteers, some of whom have experienced support first hand from the charity.

Let’s tell you a bit more about where the money you raise goes – The Ripple Retreat!

The picturesque Ripple Retreat.

The Ripple Retreat is a place for families of young cancer patients in Scotland, where you can unwind during the most challenging of times, at home in these soothing, natural surroundings. This is the realisation of years of work, to provide a calm and caring environment alongside rest and support for young cancer patients and their families, comfortable in the uniquely beautiful natural retreat away from the everyday realities of living with cancer.

And don’t take our word for it… families have told the tale of their stay too!

“What a truly wonderful place. What an amazing thing for It’s Good 2 Give to have created.

The views are nothing short of incredible. You’ve never really experienced silence and tranquillity until you’ve stayed here.”

“Can we keep this holiday?

Can we stay here forever?”
– Jacob (aged 4)

Lynne McNicoll OBE, founder of the charity said:

“With The Hunter Foundation gifting an additional 40% to your fundraising, walkers can really help give these families a break, and continue the support through the really tough times that may lie ahead for them. Thank you to The Hunter Foundation for allowing the charity to be part of such an amazing day!”
