About the Jo Walters Trust
The Jo Walters Trust has made 3 rounds of grants to organisations and individuals since it started in 2011, in line with our charitable aims: education, sport, outward bound and the environment. To read more about the grants we have made to date, please see our Grants page. We have also campaigned to improve the stretch of road in Brighton where Jo was killed to make it safer for cyclists.

The Big Day out at Caprington Castle
On 6th June 2015, the Cuninghame family have very generously agreed to allow the Jo Walters Trust to use the grounds of Caprington Castle, near Kilmarnock in Ayrshire, to hold a day of family sports and activities.
Come along to this historic castle and take part in obstacle courses, running races, archery, a climbing wall, bouncy castles, zorbing, pony rides and a whole lot more. A gourmet barbeque, provided by Kincardine Cookery, will be included in the cost of tickets.
Proceeds from the event will go to the Jo Walters Trust, to fund educational, sporting, outward bound and environmental projects in Scotland, the wider UK and abroad. With some of the money raised from the Big Day Out we are hoping to be able to fund 10 disadvantaged children from Ayrshire to attend a 5 day course run by the Outward Bound Trust.
