Afterwards, sandwiches and cakes prepared by the Rotary ladies were served and awards were presented by Community Services Chair Ronnie Mercer, who thanked all those (led by Ian Jackson) who had organised the event and worked on the day.

Sponsorship monies are still being collected but it is expected that £5000+ will be donated to the beneficiary charity St Vincent’s Hospice. This includes £2000 given by the event sponsor Arnold Clark and £2002 sponsorship raised by Ryan Waldron who dedicated his run to his late wife who had been cared for by St Vincent’s.
