Children’s Hospices Across Scotland (CHAS) is hoping more Kiltwalk participants will sign up to support the charity in this month’s Kiltwalk.

Thousands of walkers will put their best foot forward to walk from Glasgow to Loch Lomond on Sunday, April 28.

Registration closes on April 24 and an appeal has gone out for more walkers to make CHAS their nominated charity and support families who have a child with a life-shortening condition.

Walkers can sign up and choose CHAS as their nominated charity at
