Kiltie Stories

Cat
Angus

Working between Queen Margaret Union, King Tuts and DF Concerts, Cat is an Event and Venue Management extraordinaire. No one knows the value of a volunteer cheering you on more than Cat who got involved in the Kiltwalk after taking part in a number of running events as a participant. The support Cat received at similar events inspired her to return the favour to our Kiltwalker’s.

Craig
‘Chief’
O’Brien

Craig is a self-confessed Trekky Techie. Channelling his inner geek, he works as a technical support analyst for a mobile phone company. Craig’s compassion for others drew him into the Kiltwalk’s volunteering ranks. He knows that a simple smile, cuddle or kind word can make even the worst days seem brighter.

Izzy
Conway

Izzy is an Executive Officer and work coach at the Jobcentre Plus. Motivated by the desire to help Scotland’s most vulnerable children, Izzy volunteers for the Kiltwalk because our aims are close to her heart.

Lesley
Sharp

Lesley works all hours as an online shopper for Sainsbury’s. She got involved after her husband and best friend started working at the Kiltwalk and has been a prolific volunteer with us ever since. Lesley has also Walked a number of events conquering Dundee and Speyside amongst others. Lesley is itching to get back into Kiltwalk volunteering since she was restricted to the Glasgow event last year due to an ever increasing bump… who safely arrived in June.

Lindsay
MacLeod

Lindsay is Digital Data Director and Business Consultant and former member of the DLC or the ‘Dangerous Lunch Club’ – a group that helped raise money for the 2013 Kiltwalk. Lindsay is committed to the Kiltwalk because our aim of raising funds for Scottish children’s charities has never wavered.

Marion
Robinson

Marion took early retirement from the Civil Service, allowing her to provide care for her elderly mum with dementia. It also allows her time to volunteer at a wide range of things and make cakes……lots of cakes!
