ADRA CHALLENGE WALK – SCOTLAND
6th June 2013
One of Scotland's best scenic routes was the venue for this year's ADRA Challenge Scotland Walk on Sunday 2nd June. Bert Smit, ADRA UK Director and his wife Simone and Bernie Holford. Scottish mission President, joined 27 other church members on the 10 mile circular walk from the Firth of Forth esplanade through Cramonside, the Dalmeny Estate and Lauriston Castle.
A long spell of wet weather gave way to a beautiful sunny day that added to the enjoyment of the event that has raised projected sponsorship of more than £2,000.
John Wilby, Scottish Mission ADRA Sponsor, said afterwards, "We are glad the Walk has enabled us to contribute to ADRA's well and water pump programme. Tired limbs afterwards was a salutary reminder that some in Africa have to walk that distance just to get water. A picture gallery on the Adventist website will bring back positive memories for the walkers - and may stimulate more to join in next year!
