TRANENT fundraiser Scott Glynn will mark seven months since undergoing a liver transplant by holding a 30-mile walk for charity.

Scott has revealed the route for the next Walk With Scott, which will take in a 30-mile circuit of East Lothian from Tranent on Saturday, May 5.

Walkers will head from the town out along the coast to Spittal, near Longniddry, before turning inland to Haddington and back through Pencaitland, Ormiston, Whitecraig and Musselburgh before finishing in Prestonpans (see route below).

East Lothian Courier:

The 54-year-old issued an invite to supporters to join him on the sponsored walk, the latest in a series which have helped raise hundreds of thousands of pounds for local causes in recent years.

Scott, who underwent a liver transplant after being diagnosed with cancer last year, said: “On May 5 – seven months after a liver transplant – this is my target, a 30-mile sponsored walk; great chance to get yourself fit and raise money to help others.”

All funds raised will go to the Walk With Scott Foundation, a charity set up by the Elphinstone Road resident and his supporters following the success of previous such walks.

The foundation has already met its first goal of providing rempods, pop-up reminiscence rooms which have been proven to help people with dementia, for use in care homes and day centres in East Lothian.

It continues to work to provide more of the kits, as well as supporting other local groups and projects across the county.

Following its first board meeting last week, a spokersperson for the foundation said: “Walk With Scott had a really great year in 2017 and we’re all exceptionally proud of what we’ve achieved.

“Going forward we have lots of new and exciting projects coming up this year.”

Among the events is a Big Boys’ Breakfast on April 15, which has already sold out, and the next Walk on May 5.

Plans are already underway for the Scotter Ball, which will be held at Royal Musselburgh Golf Club, Prestonpans, on November 17.

The sixth Walk With Scott to be held since 2013, May’s walk is the second since the foundation was launched and is open to anyone to take part.

All money raised goes to the foundation and there is a £10 joining fee.
