A TEAM of women will be pulling on their walking shoes to raise funds for children’s charities.
Representatives from Moray Women’s Aid, including the children and young people service, will trek 16 miles from Fochabers to Aberlour on Sunday, September 1.
They, along with hundreds of others, will be taking part in the second Speyside Kiltwalk.
Diane Milne, children and young people’s worker, said: "The team deal with children who have experienced domestic abuse. We help them with there self-esteem.
"The money raised will go to fund outings for the children."
At the moment the service is dealing with around 50 youngsters.
Although many have witnessed domestic abuse, children can also access the service if they as being bullied or hurt by anyone.
The group is hoping to raise around £1,000 with half going to Kiltwalk designated charities, including the Archie Foundation, Click Sargent and the Tartan Army Children’s Charity.
Although the Moray Women’s Aid team are not planning to do the full 26-mile walk they are not ruling it out.
The event will get underway at Buckie Community Centre at 9am to the sound of Buckie and District Pipe Band.
Those who have signed up to the mini 10-mile walk will end their journey at the Fochabers Institute, while others will join those completing the marathon distance setting off at midday.
They will follow the route of the Speyside Way via Boat O’ Brig and Craigellachie for short pit stops before heading to the finishing line at the Mash Tun in Aberlour.
