Walking for Malawi hits the headlines!


Ian Baxter, from Bonnyrigg in Midlothian, attracted the attention of his local newspaper who published this piece about his walk for the Mamie Martin Fund. On May 1st he will set off from Glasgow and walk 187 miles to Aviemore, along the West and East Highland Ways. ‘It shouldn’t be too bad’ he is quoted as saying. Hmmm. He will be sent on his way by Glasgow Councillor Martha Wardrop, an established figure in the Women’s Movement in Scotland. He will be accompanied along the way by no fewer than three MMF Trustees. Moira will walk the first half day with him, Mariot will chum him on another half day and Jean will walk with him for his final two days. Our lovely new banner will feature at the start and finish as we have not dared to ask him to carry it as well as all his kit.
