On Friday the 29th of April the Run Doonhame  team held a sell our Curry night fund raiser at Dumfries Rugby Club.  Hardip from Atwal Stores,  Annan  is a Special Constable and has been a fantastic supporter of the previous Run Doonhame events.  Hardip organised the evening in conjunction with the Royal India Restaurant  , Dumfries who supplied a delicious four course meal for the 100 guests.  

VIP entertainment from Glasgow ensured the dance floor was full all night with a Bhangra themed disco which also featured bagpipes and Bhangra drums,  Glasgow based singer Amit Small and the amazing Beatboxer Bigg Taj.


Dumfries Rugby Club was transformed with balloons and table decorations supplied by Tantrum Events and special Run Doonhame cake was supplied by Fairy Boutique Cakes from Annan.


The Run Doonhame team told DGWGO ” We would like to gibve a huge thank to each and everyone who supported the event with a special thanks to Brian Armstrong and the team at Dumfries Rugby Club. ”

  “This year the challenge is bigger, better, harder. Raising money for Cash for Kids and Care of Police Survivors (COPS).”

Later in  May the team will be starting in London, we’ll run in 10km relay legs 24 hours a day from start to finish. 5 runners and their support crew will head west for

Cardiff before running the length of Wales to Holyhead before getting the ferry to Dublin in the Republic of Ireland. We’ll run up through Ireland to Belfast in Northern Ireland before getting another ferry back to home soil at Stranraer in Scotland. We will then set off for Edinburgh where we hope to coincide our arrival with the start of the 2016 Edinburgh marathon (29 May). All 5 runners will complete the marathon before running from the finish in Musselburgh back in to Edinburgh to complete our challenge at Edinburgh Castle.

This is an enormous undertaking for us and your support would be appreciated. Various events will be held in the lead up to the run itself to raise more money for two fantastic charities:Cash for Kids and Care of Police Survivors”
