PACE Kiltwalk

Last Sunday 24 April, a group of just over 100 PACE supporters took part in the Glasgow Kiltwalk to raise funds for Exchange Paisley theatre for children and young people; which will be a unique hub for creative learning, performance and community activity in the heart of Paisley town centre. There were small numbers completing the full 22 mile route or the shorter 3mile route, but the main group took part in The Big Stroll (14.5), leaving from Clydebank and finishing in Balloch. One of those supporters, Suzanne Stewart, was one of 5 winners of the Arnold Clark Kiltwalk ‘Kiltie’ picture competition, which wins her a £500 bonus to her JustGiving page!

Jenni Mason, Artistic Director of PACE Youth Theatre said:

“The Kiltwalk is a brilliant event; the atmosphere is amazing which makes it ideal for families and friend groups to enjoy together and we were thrilled that so many people were willing to get involved and support our organisation. We’re incredibly grateful to everyone who took part and for their support for Exchange Theatre, which will be an incredible resource for young people and families, for artists and for the wider community, as well as being central to the regeneration of Paisley.

“The 50% top-up from The Hunter Foundation makes the Kiltwalk an especially valuable fundraising opportunity for us and although we don’t have the final figure yet, thanks to our supporters we’ve already raised nearly £9000 which is just fantastic!”
