We're pretty excited here having completed our sponsorship work on www.challengescotland.com, which went live recently to the delight (we presume) of the thousands of participants who take part in the Edinburgh Christmas Walk and Walk for Scotland every year.
When Terry Crossley, stalwart organiser of these events, came to us with a portfolio of websites and a list of domains as long as your arm, we immediately saw the opportunity to pull it together into a single, sustainable platform under a common brand.
We've developed the brand and website so that there is now a fundraising engine to which charities can subscribe and easily raise funds and any number of different events may appear there in future. Our goal is for Challenge Scotland to raise £10 million over the next five years.
CIVIC will be joining the fun at the Edinburgh Christmas Walk this year. Come and join us, choosing which charity you want to support from more than 25 that have subscribed so far.
The Edinburgh Christmas Walk takes place on Sunday 6 December, 2009, starting in Inverleith Park at 11am. If you prefer something a bit racier, the Edinburgh Christmas Fun Run starts at 9:30am.
