RCET Chair takes on 140 mile walk for Armed Forces kids

Malcolm Noble, RCET Chairman is taking on yet another fundraising challenge for the charity. Malcolm, aged 72 has been Chairman of RCET for just over 7 years. A keen hill-walker, Malcolm has already taken on a number of walking challenges for the charity from the West Highland Way as well as 2 out of 4 of the Kiltwalks.

This year as well as completing his third Kiltwalk in Dundee, he will also be walking to Rome from Orvieto. Starting on the 27th of May, this represents a journey of over 140 miles, entering Rome through the Porto Sebastiano, a route taken by the British Armed Forces when they liberated Rome towards the end of the Second World War. To mark this occasion Malcolm also plans to enter Rome and finish his challenge on the 5th of June the anniversary of the liberation itself.

Malcolm, a former Head Teacher himself, is passionate both about children’s education and about military history so this challenge – and being Chairman of Scotland’s Armed Forces children’s charity – is a perfect fit for him.

As Chair of our charity Malcolm believes firmly in setting an example he says. ’This walk, my longest so far, seemed a good way of marking my year as President of the Caledonian Society of London. The Society has raised funds for RCET over many years. Armed Forces children can struggle with the transition of moving schools and the worry of deployment of a parent to areas of conflict. This is when RCET steps in to provide support to ensure they can still reach their full potential.’

Consider sponsoring Malcolm today and help him in his challenge. Together, we can lift Armed Forces children out of challenging circumstances and ensure that they reach their full potential.
