Troon Tortoises News – Summer 2011

Race Activity During The Summer

Tortoises have been active during the summer season, most recently in the Round Arran Relays on Saturday 23rd July:

Our race activity during the summer season is recorded on our 2011 results page. This page has been subject to “technical problems” which account for the appearance and disappearance of photos, not to mention the page itself, from time to time recently. These problems are under on-going investigation and we hope to solve them eventually!

A Message For The Tortoises From David Harper of Troon St Meddans Parish Church 

I would like to thank the Club for their organisation of the Troon 10K each year (I’ve had the pleasure of running in 5 of the last 6 events).  In particular I would ask you to pass on the information that at this year’s event we formed a team from St Meddan’s Parish Church (including a runner from St Ninian’s Episcopal Church and St Quivox Parish Church in Ayr) and we raised through sponsorship the wonderful sum of £4244 for Combat Stress – the Organisation based in Scotland at Hollybush House which gives help to Service personnel who are suffering from that illness.  The idea of forming the team came from a chance conversation I had with one of my members who had already entered the Event and it just seemed to snowball.

 Thanks to everyone for making available to us through this year’s 10K the opportunity to raise this money for such a worthy cause.

 David Harper.
