Relay Raises Funds for Local North East Charities

The community has been getting creative during lockdown, finding new ways to continue the regular events and raise money for great local causes whilst complying with current restrictions.

Due to COVID-19, the annual 10K run was cancelled however the community decided to recreate the event by organising a 24 hour contactless relay which saw 24 locals each run for one hour continuously from 3pm on Saturday 11 July until 3pm on Sunday 12 July.

The distance covered by the runners was over 280 kilometres and raised almost £1,500 for Aberdeenshire organisations Pillar Kincardine, a small charity in Stonehaven which supports people in the area who are coping with serious emotional social or mental health difficulties, and the Portlethen Community Ambulance Association which is used to transport patients living locally who have difficulty travelling to and from Portlethen Medical Centre.
