For char­ity

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

our male col­leagues helped by or­gan­is­ing a pink bal­loon race, where we pur­chased a bal­loon of hope ty­ing our per­sonal mes­sage to it and re­leas­ing it into the sky just be­fore we headed to the race, this raised a fur­ther £80.”

Friends Catherine West­wood, Ash­ley Fer­gu­son and Jade Wat­ters, all from Ruther­glen, did the race and have so far col­lected over £180. They ran it in less than 40 min­utes.

Jade said: “We’re re­ally pleased we took part in this event. It was a great day, and to raise money for such a fan­tas­tic cause was a real bonus. Now we’re go­ing to start train­ing for the 10K!”

For many of the run­ners, there was a per­sonal rea­son for rais­ing money.

One of those who took part was El­lie Jamieson ( 10), a pupil at Bankhead Pri­mary.

Her mum Libby said: “El­lie took part with her two aunts Elaine and Caro­line, from Ruther­glen, on be­half of our mum and her gran, that was dig­nosed with breast can­cer last year and go­ing through treat­ment just now.”

Cam­bus­lang’s Alison Grant took part with her daugh­ters Jodie and Lucy.

She said: “It was Jodie’s sec­ond but Lucy’s first. They did re­ally well con­sid­er­ing the weather!”
