Twenty-six intrepid Primary 7s, with some enthusiastic staff, will be walking 55 miles of the West Highland Way, to raise funds for Future Hope, a charity focussed on helping vulnerable children in Kolkata, India.
The Junior School walkers will set off from Fort William on Thursday 12 May, and will finish their incredible journey in Inverarnan on Sunday 15 May. Along with raising money for Future Hope, the aim of the walk is to give the participants a personal challenge while they make memories and have fun with new friends.
We wish everyone involved the best of luck with their training and preparation, and we’ll keep you up-to-date with their progress.
About Future Hope
Future Hope is a charitable organisation which provides opportunity through its homes, school, sports and medical programme for some of the most vulnerable children from the streets and slums of Kolkata, India.
Every night children sleep alone on the streets and around the city’s main stations. Many are ill, most suffer serious forms of exploitation and all are vulnerable. Future Hope addresses the individual needs of these children and helps them to become independent, self-supporting members of society.
