Challenge to run or walk Mull Trail

VETERAN of physical challenges, Granny Mavis Paterson, has issued another challenge to walk, jog or run the length of Stranraer Rotary Club’s new Mull of Galloway Trail in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.

Taking place on Saturday 6th April, the challenge will be either to walk the entire 24 miles of the path in a day or do it as a team event splitting the walk into four manageable sections. There is already interest from people who intend to undertake the challenge on their own and at least two teams have so far identified themselves, one being from the riding club who will be walking in memory of their friend and Mavis’ daughter, Katy Cumming, who died recently.

All funds raised from the event will be used to support cancer patients and their families in the local area. Sponsor sheets will be available from mid February and anyone wishing any more information should contact Edith McDonald on 01776 870622 or Jane Sloan on 01776 870648.
