Fundraiser took to the streets of Aberdeen for a 10-mile walk to raise cash for charity.
The Culture Crawl, which raises funds for Maggie’s cancer centre, saw more than 500 people walk through the streets of the city, visiting 12 different cultural landmarks.
The walk passed the Freemasons Hall, the Zoology Museum, Seaton Park, Marischal Square and The Capitol, before heading back to Maggie’s on Westburn Road for a final celebration. An event took place at each stop, from a choir performance at Marischal Square to a pop-up vodka and gin bar in Union Terrace Gardens.
Each walker was tasked with raising at least £100 before the walk, and organisers reported that £38,000 had already been raised before anyone had taken their first step.
Fundraising manager Paula Cormack said: “It’s been amazing, the atmosphere has been incredible, it was just a sea of orange in front of us.
“The sun looked like it was timed for us heading out. Everybody seems to have had a really great time, and they’re very much up for raising money, which is what the night is about. It’s a sponsored walk with a lot of bells and whistles added in.
“The best way I describe it is as a twilight sponsored walk, with a sprinkling of the Edinburgh Fringe.”
The different stages of the journey were kept a secret from the walkers until just before the walk set off.
Paula added: “There’s 12 different venues, and it’s places that people don’t normally get to see in these circumstances, they’re real hidden gems of the city.
“As well as being a great night out, it engenders a sense of civic pride, it really gives people a sense of how rich Aberdeen is.”
Paula said the aim of the evening was to raise awareness of the work that Maggie’s does, as well as to raise all important funding.
She said: “We’re hoping for a lot of fundraising.
“Before anyone had taken a step, we raised £38,000, and our final tally was £76,000 last year, so we’re expecting to make a lot more. But it’s also a huge awareness-raiser, that we get the message out to people about Maggie’s.”
