Our minister Colin put on his kilt (a tasteful, muted Johnston tartan) and walked round the 5 churches in the parish on the 23/24th of April as part of Kiltwalk 21. He started at Hownam (see photo above) and walked in the glorious sunshine to Morebattle on the Friday. On the Saturday he started off for Linton, then to Hoselaw, meeting sheep, cattle and horses on the way. At Hoselaw he was joined by Carol Butler to walk across the hills to Yetholm where he was met by a finishing line and a group of church members (below). He has raised £1,245 to date, with the prospect of another £100 to come. The Hunter Foundation has pledged to give an extra 50% of anything raised. Many thanks to all who have contributed - and, of course, to Colin.
