The University of Edinburgh Chaplaincy invites you to take part in a sponsored walk with a difference.
Walk 15 miles on Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th June, students, staff and the local Edinburgh community will unite to walk 15 miles from Edinburgh to the ruins of St Brigid’s Church, Dalgety Bay, before camping overnight and then boarding a boat to Inchcolm Island. The itinerary combines ancient pilgrimage routes, crosses the Fourth Road Bridge, and is a way of remembering the journeys taken by many refugees today, their need for sanctuary and the tradition of hospitality. Participants in the walk will raise money for a new University Fund established to provide financial assistance for refugees wishing to enter higher education at Edinburgh University.
