“Tartanised” Statues Raise Awareness for Vulnerable Children
Just as the weather turned chilly some of Scotland’s most iconic statues dressed a little more warmly than usual!
In Edinburgh, Sir Walter Scott now sits proudly on the Scott Monument on Princes Street sporting a tartan sash and Greyfriars Bobby has his very own tailor-made tartan coat and scarf, specially designed by Geoffrey (Tailor) Kiltmakers.
Comic strip characters also joined in the fun with Desperate Dan sporting a kilt and sash in Dundee and Glasgow favourite Lobey Dosser now wears a tartan scarf.
Kilts for Kids Day, which takes place on Friday 26 November this year, is an annual major fundraising event for CHILDREN 1ST that sees hundreds of people across Scotland holding Scottish-themed events to raise money for the most vulnerable children in Scotland.
This will be the third year in a row that the event has taken place and to date it has raised over £175,000. It is always held on the Friday before St Andrews Day.
