THE Walk With Scott Foundation (WWSF) celebrated its first ever Scotters Ball at the weekend and hailed it as a huge success as it thanked supporters for all their hard work.

The glamorous evening was held on Saturday at Royal Musselburgh Golf Club, Prestonpans.

Thousands of pounds were raised, helping the foundation to continue the work it carries out promoting health and wellbeing in the local area, as well as supporting local projects and charities across East Lothian​.

Karen Kidd from the WWSF said: “It was a truly wonderful evening and it was so lovely to be able to get ‘properly glammed up’.

“Everyone had such an amazing night, a year in the planning by our WWSF board ‘family’, and it couldn’t have gone any better.

“We’d like to take the opportunity to say a massive thank you to everyone for their continued support, we were absolutely overwhelmed with the generosity of people who gifted auction and raffle prizes and who contributed in the run-up to the ball, and on the night itself.

“Thousands of pounds were raised and we look forward to sharing our plans in the near future, on the projects we’re seeking to help next.”

Meanwhile, big-hearted WWSF members have had a first-hand account of how their cash is being used to help others.

Members took a trip to Beach Wheelchairs in North Berwick to see the electric wheelchair they donated £8,000 towards.

The cash, raised through the 2018 Walk With Scott – an annual walk around the county – was handed over by Tranent’s Scott Glynn, who gives his name to the charity.

The fundraisers were welcomed by beneficiary Charlie Kay and his family, and Charlie took the chair for a spin on the beach.

Karen said: “A huge thank you goes out to all of our Scotters who took part in this year’s Walk With Scott.

“We are so very proud to see the difference that this electric wheelchair is going to make to people’s lives, especially living on such an amazing coastline.

“Now our beautiful beaches are accessible to all, and we wish Charlie and his fellow drivers, and their families, tons of future fun on the beach.”
