Iain MacGillivray will be taking part in a 23-mile walk in support of the Kiltwalk Trust Fund, as a way of giving back to those who cared for his son when he fell ill.
Iain tells us: “I, like many others, have a keen interest in Yorkhill [Royal Hospital for Sick Children]. My son Finn was burned in an accident in 2010, and they took over my son’s care after the RVI in Newcastle had done an excellent job in stabilising him and doing his initial grafts.”
Iain continues: “He still attends the plastic surgery consultant on a regular basis and was also there with a non-related potentially life threatening illness when he was five. Obviously, as you can see, there is a lot for me to pay back.”
Along with friend John, Iain will be walking from the SECC to Loch Lomond, via Yorkhill, on April 27, to help raise money for the hospital, and many other children’s health services in Scotland.
