School Students inspire school staff’s Kiltwalk for charity

8 staff from Dales Park School Pose for photo at KiltwalkA team of eight staff from Dales Park School in Peterhead successfully completed the Aberdeen Kiltwalk, raising an impressive £1451.25 for Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus (SBH) Scotland.

The epic 17.8 mile challenge from Duthie Park to Bellfield Park saw the team comprising Martin Wright, Wendy Gibson, Beverley Buchanan, Vikki Stephen, Craig Howie, Judith Cardno, Katherine Matthew and Margaret Buchan walking in solidarity and raising awareness for a charity close to their hearts.

Dales Park School has always had a strong connection to Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Scotland, a Scottish charity providing essential support and clinical services to children, young people and adults living with lifelong, complex disabilities. Many current and past pupils at the school have benefited from the charity's support as well as the charity staff providing any requested information sessions for Dales Park staff who want to find out more about the management of the conditions.

Martin Wright, Teacher of ASN at Dales Park School said,

"We are incredibly proud to have competed in the Aberdeen Kiltwalk and to have raised so much money for a great cause. Our school has long had an ethos of being caring and community focussed so SBH Scotland was an obvious and meaningful choice for each of us. The funds raised will make a significant difference in the lives of our students and many others across Scotland."

Caelsa Sim, mum to Dales Park pupil and SBH Scotland charity member, Tyler, said, “SBH Scotland have done so much for Tyler and myself from one to one support through to family groups and activities. Specifically, over the past couple of years Wendy [SBH Scotland Support Lead] has dedicated time to growing Tyler’s confidence which means he now has the confidence to tackle so many things he never would have before.

She continued, “I was so grateful to hear that Tyler’s school were fundraising for our charity. SBH Scotland need to raise over £1.5 million each year to support families just like ours – they mean so much to us.”

Lynsey Hamilton, Fundraising Manager for SBH Scotland responded saying,

“This is community fundraising at it’s best. People coming together to positively impact families in the region. We’re so thankful to Dales Park School and to everyone who kindly donated; enabling our support team to make sure all our children are unstoppable in life.”
