A NEILSTON mum has said she couldn’t be "more proud" of her two teenage daughters as they take on Glasgow’s Kiltwalk to raise cash for a good cause.

Gayle Harvey, 46, and her daughters 17-year-old Katie and 14-year-old Emily have been taking part in the Kiltwalk since 2016.

They are set to walk the fundraiser again on Sunday, April 30, to raise money for Calum’s Cabin, a charity which offers respite for young people and families battling cancer.

Katie, an S6 pupil at Eastwood High in Newton Mearns, was inspired to support Calum's Cabin after a family day trip years ago led her to discover it.

Gayle said: “When Katie was a wee girl, we went for a day trip to Rothesay and she saw the Calum’s Cabin shop - and then she was asking all about cancer.

“She decided that she wanted to make money to help, and she started making loom band bracelets and cakes to take them into primary school to sell to her friends to raise money."

After deciding she wanted to help a bit more, Gayle and Katie started taking part in the Kiltwalk's ‘Wee Wander’ to raise money for the charity.

The Wee Wander is one of three walks that fundraisers can participate in as part of the mammoth fundraiser. Taking in three miles, walkers go from Loch Lomond Shore to Moss O'Balloch Park.

Gayle said: “I couldn’t be more proud of my girls.”

“I love how they give their time and efforts to support children less fortunate than themselves.”

Calum’s Cabin was created after a young boy called Calum Speirs passed away from an inoperable brain tumour in 2007.

Calum’s death then inspired his parents Duncan and Caroline and his twin sister Jenna to start fundraising to fulfil Calum’s dream to offer family holidays to children like him.

The Kiltwalk is Scotland's largest mass participation walking event with more than 120,000 walkers taking part in it since 2016.

Fundraisers have raised £24.6 million to date, with Sir Tom Hunter and The Hunter Foundation topping it up by £12.5 million. 

Glasgow is just one of the Scottish cities which holds the walks, with Abeerdeen, Edinburgh, and Dundee also hosting them.
