The Scottish band that had a hit about walking 500 miles is asking people to take small steps to help feed hungry kids.
Proclaimers promote walking to help feed world’s poorest children
Scottish musical stars The Proclaimers have called on the public to start walking to help raise funds to feed children in some of the world’s poorest countries.
Craig and Charlie Reid, who famously sang about walking 500 miles, are backing Scottish charity Mary’s Meals campaign Move for Meals, which encourages people to raise sponsorship while getting active.
“We’re not asking you to walk 500 miles, or 500 more. With Mary’s Meals, just a small number of steps can help to feed hungry children across the world,” Charlie said.
The twins, from Leith, Edinburgh, have supported the charity for several years.
