We’re doing the (Virtual) Kiltwalk!

Glasgow Ice Centre – registered Charity SC050260 – is raising money for a Fighting Fund to pay for a comprehensive report including business plan, funding models and site identification to see what kind of ice centre can be built in the city.

Five people have so far signed up to join what should have been the Edinburgh Kiltwalk, but is now a Virtual Kiltwalk that can be completed by anyone.

Wheelchair Curler and Paralympian Aileen Neilson plans to push a full marathon distance over the course of the weekend 11th-13th September.

Trustee Liz Burton-King is walking round the whole of Glasgow City Centre checking in at all 28 murals on the Glasgow mural trail (and scoping out great locations for a new ice rink!). She’s hoping that some others might join her on the walk, wearing a new Glasgow Ice Centre t-shirt (100% of profit on all our merchandise comes back to GIC!)

Strathclyde Uni student and Scottish Curling athlete Mark Taylor is doing a sweeping challenge – he’s calculated the amount of sweeping that would be done by one team in a whole weekend of curling competition and plans to sweep his floor the equvalent number of times. Definitely more exhausting that it sounds, for those of you who’ve never played curling!

Skater Janet Donaldson and Glasgow Young Curling Club Secretary Carol have yet to reveal their plans, but whatever they do, and however much we all raise as a team – the Hunter Foundation will add 50% to the total as a generous charitable top-up – never more needed in these times
