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, bouncy castles, zorbing, pony rides and a whole lot more. A gourmet barbeque, cooked by Kincardine Cookery, and sponsored by Hill House Quarry Group, 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 will provide the funds for 10 children from Ayrshire to attend a 5 day residential course run by the Outward Bound Trust.
To stay up to date with all the latest activities and news, please do join our event on Facebook, or sign up for our newsletter using the form on the right, to receive periodic email updates about the event.
