Dumfries & Galloway Standard Team Run For DG Sands

SandspicD&G Sands were delighted when the Dumfries & Galloway Standard chose Sands as the recipients of money raised from the half marathon in September. Four of their staff decided to attempt the run for their first ever half marathon. With the help of Dumfries running club Laura, Stephen, Trish and Charis set about training for it. Katy Pagan researched the work and personal stories of the charity, which all members were happy to share. Each week there was a feature in the paper about our work and a story from the parents.

The team managed to find a local business each to sponsor them. They were Mississippi Bar and Grill, Noky’s disco, Abacus insurance and Gael Moffat Sports therapy.

After successfully completing the 13 mile slog the group were ecstatic at raising the amazing sum of £3 152, which will all go towards supporting bereaved parents in our region. Thank you so much from all of us for your supreme efforts.
