Irene & friends start the 2017 Kiltwalk season in style

Irene Simmons, PA to the NVT Group Directors, along with two friends of NVT Group took part in the Dundee Kiltwalk this past weekend (Sunday 20th August, 2017).

Irene was joined by Andrea Niven and Alison Cranmer for ‘The Mighty Stride’ and completed the full 25 miles of the Dundee Kiltwalk route. Congratulations to all of you!

The three ladies decided to take part in this year’s Kiltwalk to support ENABLE Scotland, which is NVT Group’s nominated charity of the year for 2017.  All in all, they walked more than 28 miles on the day, amounting to an impressive 63,569 steps (and burning off 2,798 calories in the process!)  The ladies are still counting their donations and will have a final fundraising total for their efforts soon.

In the meantime, more than 20 people from NVT Group, Irene included, will be taking part in The Edinburgh Kiltwalk, which takes place on Sunday 17th September.  You can keep up to date with our fundraising activities here on our website and on our social media channels (follow the links in the footer).

NVT Group raised more than £14,000 for ENABLE Scotland in 2016 and we are looking to match this figure in 2017.

Well done ladies!
