The first event this year was held at the Cuckoo Bridge Tesco, A Cyclathon hosted by the Dumfries Devorgilla Rotary Club – the cyclist were hoping to travel the distance of 137 miles between Dumfries Tesco & Stranraer Tesco in 12 hours. They smashed that target easily, and eventually completed 267.2 miles and raised over £2000 to be shared between Prostate Scotland and ourselves – well done all who took part and helped on the day.
Next up is a concert being held in the Dumfries Baptist Church Centre on Sat 8th April where the “Shand Family” along with others will offer you an evening of Scottish Music (This concert is now SOLD OUT)
