The Big Day Out - News from the Outward Bound Trust

"The Jo Walters Trust exists to commemorate the life of Joanna Walters, an inspiring individual with a passion for outdoor pursuits, who was tragically killed while cycling just after qualifying as a teacher.

On Saturday, 6th June 2015 The Jo Walters Trust is holding an event at Caprington Castle, Kilmarnock.  The Big Day Out is a fun family day with a host of activities, sporting challenges and a gourmet barbeque included in the ticket price.

All proceeds from the event will fund educational, sporting and environmental projects, with a portion of the funds earmarked to enable 10 children with disadvantaged backgrounds in Ayrshire to go on a 5 day Outward Bound adventurous outdoor activity and personal development course.

Please go to http://www.jowalterstrust.org.uk/events-and-fundraising/events/125-big-day-out-at-caprington-castle.html to find out more about the event and also about the Jo Walters Trust.
