Christian Aid Week 2022 this charity walk is being organised to get
everyone out into the fresh air to enjoy exercise and the beauty of
Edinburgh, and this year to raise funds for vulnerable families in Zimbabwe,
struggling to grow crops to feed their children. You do not have to be
super fit and can use any means that you wish between the hills, be it by
foot, bus, car, scooter or bicycle. Come for the challenge whether you walk
up 1,2,3 or more, or perhaps all seven hills!

When? Saturday 21 May Start? Wherever & whenever you wish. It’s up
to you. Some of us will be gathering at Priestfield Church at 10.00am.
where Christian Aid T-shirts will be available for walkers. (This will coincide
with Priestfield’s Café Time for Christian Aid. Come and join us!)
