Thanks to readers for sponsoring my wife's runs!

A huge thank you to all who sponsored my wife Claire for her two half-marathons recently in Glasgow and Manchester, which she ran to try to raise money for two local causes here in Largs, North Ayrshire - namely 1st Largs Boys Brigade's minibus appeal and Douglas Park Nursery. Claire set herself a goal to raise £299, but in fact went well past that, raising an impressive £676 from both online donations at JustGiving and through offline donations! The money will be divided equally between both causes.

If you would still like to help both causes, her Just Giving page is at The following pics show her on both runs, and pictured with her brother Shane who also ran the two half-marathons.

Thanks again folks! :)
