Gift card to thank gen­er­ous 35-year-old

Rutherglen Reformer - - Newton Gala Day - Jonathan Ged­des

A kind-hearted Castlemilk woman has been re­warded for all her char­ity work.

Tracy Dunn, from Machrie Road, has raised tens of thou­sands of pounds for char­i­ties and good causes over the years.

But the 35-year-old can now spoil her­self, hav­ing won a na­tion­wide con­test run by intu .

She was nom­i­nated by a pal as some­one de­serv­ing of a spe­cial treat.

The fit­ness in­struc­tor and mum-of-two had al­ready won the intu Brae­head heat, which had a prize of a £200 gift card.

Tracy then went on to win the most votes na­tion­ally for her char­ity work and has now been pre­sented with a £2000 gift card as a prize.

For the past ten years Tracy has been tire­lessly rais­ing money her­self and en­cour­ag­ing oth­ers to join her in her ef­forts for can­cer char­i­ties and other lo­cal good causes.

Tracy re­cruits her fundrais­ers mainly from the women who at­tend her fit­ness classes in Castlemilk .

Over the years they have done ev­ery­thing from run­ning road races in fancy dress to danc­ing out­side a su­per­mar­ket and tak­ing part in the Pretty Muddy chal­lenge last month.

Tracy said: “It’s fab­u­lous to have been nom­i­nated and then go on to win the intu Big Treat prize, but I don’t see that I’m do­ing any­thing spe­cial.

“I know I’ve raised tens of thou­sands of pounds for char­i­ties over the years, but I wouldn’t have been able to do that with­out the help of other peo­ple.

“It only takes up some of my time or­gan­is­ing and tak­ing part in the char­ity events and if you can do some­thing to help peo­ple, then you should do it.”

Tracy was nom­i­nated by her friend Lynn O’Brien, also from Castlemilk.

Proud Lynn said: “Tracy is so kind­hearted and al­ways goes out of her way to help oth­ers.

“We’ve told her that she’s to spend the £ 2000 prize gift card on her­self as she cer­tainly de­serves to treat her­self.”
