The chief executive of a Scottish children’s charity is raising funds by taking on 30 hills in seven days in November.
Dr Judith Turbyne will climb 30 hills over a seven-day period to mark Children In Scotland’s 30th anniversary.
Judith started her itinerary in and around the Sidlaws on Saturday and aims to complete her challenge on November 18 at Arthur’s Seat in Edinburgh.
She will be joined by friends and colleagues from the organisation throughout various stages of her challenge.
Judith said: “As Children in Scotland turns 30, I’d like to shine the spotlight on our wonderful organisation and hopefully raise a bit of money.
“In particular, I am interested in raising awareness of our membership service and our children and young people’s advisory group, Changing our World.
“They are both an essential part of the DNA of Children in Scotland or, perhaps more accurately, the beating heart of the organisation.
“I am hoping that I will have company for some of the hills, but in the alone moments, it will be a great opportunity for me to reflect on my first two years in the post and to think about the next two.
“I think that it will all help me reinvest in my energy and creativity for the challenges ahead.”
On June 7, 2023, Children in Scotland celebrated its 30th anniversary.
The organisation champions the voices of children and young people, ensuring that they are at the heart of policy and decision making, and being a leading force for workforce development.
Their membership brings together more than 450 organisations and individuals from schools, charities and nurseries to NHS Boards, local authorities and community interest groups.
Throughout her challenge, Judith will be fundraising for Children in Scotland.
