DELVE INTO THE AD­VER­TISER ARCHIVES Fan­tas­tic four help char­ity

Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser - - Views -

A quick-fire quar­tet of cousins went full speed ahead to col­lect a three- fig­ure sum for char­ity in 2002.

Al­lan and Graeme Wright and Martin and Thomas Ritchie teamed up to raise £ 633 for Cancer Re­search UK by com­plet­ing the Great Scot­tish Ju­nior Run around Glas­gow Green.

Mar tin, a pupil at Coat­bridge’s Rose­hall High School, was first over the line when he clocked an im­pres­sive time of 15 min­utes and 59 sec­onds.

Al­lan fin­ished just five sec­onds be­hind Martin, with nine-year-olds Graeme and Thomas putting many older run­ners to shame with a fleet-footed fin­ish time of 19 min­utes, 44 sec­onds.

The fan­tas­tic four are pic­tured in the pages of the Oc­to­ber 30, 2002, Ad­ver­tiser.
