As part of Leith Festival 2013 the Leith Community Fundraising Organisation ( LCFO ) headed by Gerry Freedman are organising a charity fundraising day on Saturday 15/06/13 in Leith. The first event that day will be a charity walk and LCFO are delighted to announce that CCLASP have been chosen to be the main charity for the funds raised.
CCLASP is an Edinburgh based children's charity, set up in 1994 to help support children and groups of families, to express and share the feelings, anxieties and the horror of having a child with a life threatening illness.
The big project at CCLASP is to raise 55k for a bus to transport families for hospital visits etc and have got 25k to go. Paul Kane a well known figure in Leith and also a patron of CCLASP has through his football connections attracted legends such as Lawrie Reilly, Pat Stanton,Micky Weir , Jackie Macnamara, Ralph Callaghan and many more to support and indeed participate in the walk on behalf of CCLASP. The walk starts at the walk-way at Leith Academy Car Park at 1030am. and follows the route along the walk -way and will finish at Leith Links ( about 1 mile) meaning no roads will need to be crossed.
This walk will be a wonderful chance for ALL ages to be part of this great day and raise monies for a wonderful charity.
