Three Charities Walk: Raising Funds during Lockdown

14th May 2020

Words byJo Vallis

We are pleased to share exciting news that Friends of Chitambo Trustee Richard Vallis is undertaking a 'Three Charities Walk' during the COVID-19 UK lockdown. This walk will raise money for three charities dear to Richard's heart, including Friends of Chitambo, Lothian Disability Sport and Lung Ha Theatre Company.

In Richard's own words-

During lockdown due to the Covid-19 pandemic, I thought I'd make use of my daily exercise to support Lung Ha Theatre Company, Lothian Disability Sport and Friends of Chitambo, three charities dear to my heart, and do a sponsored walk within the garden. 100 times round the garden will be about 6 kilometres, 4 miles. With my disability, an above-hip amputation, this will be quite a challenge and will require roughly twice as much energy than what would be needed prior to my amputation - but I'd hope to achieve it in about 3 weeks. I very much hope people see fit to support me in this effort to raise funds for these amazing organisations!

Please do support Richard if you can! To find out more and make a donation, please visit Richard's fundraising page on Crowdfunder here "Three Charities Walk". You will be making a fantastic difference in Zambia and Scotland during this time...
