Rt Rev Sally Foster-Fulton, Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland will be donning tartan and walking boots this weekend to take part in the popular Aberdeen Kiltwalk and to raise money for Christian Aid.
The Moderator is walking the 3.7 mile ‘Wee Wander', one of two walking events taking place as part of the Aberdeen Kiltwalk on Sunday June 4th. Mrs Foster-Fulton took a year's sabbatical from her work as head of Christian Aid Scotland to take on the role of the Kirk's ambassador at home and abroad.
She said: "I'm thrilled to be taking part in the Aberdeen Kiltwalk and step by step raising money for Christian Aid, walking alongside our sisters and brothers living in extreme poverty.
"It's been a busy time since I became Moderator but I'm delighted to be spending this weekend in Aberdeen and connecting with communities in the north-east.
"I'm very much looking forward to being supported by a few friendly faces from local churches who are going to join me on the journey."
The current head of Christian Aid Scotland Val Brown said: "We're delighted that Sally has been able to find time in her very busy diary to take part in the Aberdeen Kiltwalk for Christian Aid.
"Events like this are a wonderful way to fundraise and have a great day out.
"Every penny that Sally raises will go towards our work fighting poverty and injustice – whether that be in South Sudan, Bangladesh or Malawi.
"Good luck to everyone taking part on Sunday."
The Kiltwalk is one of Scotland's biggest mass participation charity events with thousands taking part in the Aberdeen Kiltwalk, walking for their favourite charity or cause.
