My name is Neil Berry and I am a member of ENABLE Scotland. I hope you and your loved ones are safe as we continue to live through these extraordinary times.
I am delighted to be one of ENABLE Scotland’s Ambassadors for this year’s Virtual Kiltwalk.
Last year, despite the pandemic so many of you made a real difference for ENABLE Scotland by donating to the Virtual Kiltwalk, raising vital funds to help keep supporting people who have learning disabilities like me and their families – no matter what.
This year we are all still living in challenging circumstances but we know there is light at the end of the tunnel – so will you help us once again so that we can support people in the recovery from COVID-19?
I love taking part in the Kiltwalk! In 2019 I walked all four Kiltwalk in support of ENABLE Scotland and it was a fantastic experience – I am so glad that even though we are still living with restrictions we can take part through the Virtual Kiltwalk which is happening in communities across Scotland.
The new services ENABLE Scotland have created over lockdown, like ACE Connect, have made a real difference to me and many other people with learning disabilities. They have made sure that I am never struggling on my own. ENABLE Scotland's vision is important to me because it has helped me and other people who have learning disabilities to live full lives. It's a human right to have direction over the choices and decisions that guide your life!
So, I want to make sure ENABLE Scotland can continue doing this but I need your help!
I am going to challenge myself and complete a trek across Aberdeen on the weekend of 23rd-25th April.
Please sponsor me on my Virtual Kiltwalk weekend to help ENABLE Scotland maintain crucial support for children and adults who have a learning disability – and if you sponsor me before the deadline of Sunday 2nd May, Sir Tom Hunter has promised to top up your donation by 50% at no extra cost to you or ENABLE Scotland!
With your support and donations, ENABLE Scotland can continue to help people who have a learning disability and their families stay connected, active, informed and engaged throughout this really difficult time; and begin to look ahead to the recovery and getting us all back on our feet, meeting each other in person again.
Thank you so much for your support – we really can’t do this without you.
