CHILDREN 1ST says, get Kilty!
Thursday 23 October 2008
Have a look at our movie below to find out why celebrities Kaye Adams and Sanjeev Singh Kholi are supporting Kilts for Kids.
Our brand new fundraiser Kilts for Kids Day will take place on Friday 28 November, and we are encouraging everyone to turn Scotland tartan and organise Scottish-themed events in the run-up to St Andrews Day!
Every primary and secondary school across Scotland, as well as companies, businesses and clubs, has received a Kilts for Kids fundraising pack full of fundraising ideas such as hosting a tartan day at school or 'dress down Friday' to organising a Kiltaoke or Scottish-themed quiz night.
'Teaser' Poster Campaign
We have also been running a 'teaser' poster campaign in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Perth, Dundee, Paisley and Greenock featuring well-known 'tartanized' landmarks like Edinburgh Castle, the Armadillo (SECC) Glasgow, the Caird Hall, Dundee, and St Machar's Cathedral, Aberdeen.
Members of the public are also advised to keep their eyes peeled for certain monuments which may be seen sporting a tartan scarf or kilt over the next few weeks, including the Lobby Dosser Statue in Glasgow, the giraffes on Leith Street in Edinburgh, and the Big Wire Horse and three Big Heids on the M8.
"A day of Scottish-themed fun"
CHILDREN 1ST chief executive Anne Houston, said: "In the run-up to St Andrews Day, Kilts for Kids Day offers a day of Scottish-themed fun: from hosting a Scottish tea party to a Kiltaoke - Scottish songs and musicians - to a quiz night featuring Scottish questions."
"Kilts for Kids Day is a great opportunity for everyone, young and old, to embrace all things tartan and have a great time raising money that will really make a difference for some of Scotland's most vulnerable children and families."
