Stephen Wilkie of Sinclair Scott Chartered Accountants and David MacKay of MacKay Corporate Insurance Brokers ran 10 kilometres and raised a magnificent £1275.

Stephen Wilkie said: "We are delighted to have raised money for a local charity and wish to thank everyone that sponsored us. We aim to participate in this 10K run each year and continue to raise money for Ayrshire Cancer Support."

David MacKay said: “I would echo Stephen’s comments, and hope we can be as successful next year.”

Ayrshire Cancer Support administrator Shirley Macmillan said: ‘We are very grateful to Stephen and David for raising this money all of which will benefit the people of Ayrshire."

Ayrshire Cancer Support has operated in Ayrshire since 1982 providing emotional support and practical help for cancer patients, their families, carers and the bereaved. Their aim is to ensure that help is readily available for everyone who needs it.

The Cancer Support Centres in Ayr and Kilmarnock were opened in 1997 in response to an identified need for counselling and support services. The centres provide a drop-in facility for cancer patients, their families and the bereaved and provide a range of services including counselling, support groups and complementary therapies.

The Ayrshire Cancer Support silver jubilee fun run/walk will take place at 1.30pm on Sunday 30 September and is open to all ages, fancy dress, pets and prams.

The 6K route starts at the Citadel Leisure Centre, Ayr, along the seafront promenade to the Doon estuary and return to the Citadel.

Entry forms can be obtained from the centres at Kilmarnock (01563 538008) or Ayr (01292 26988) or by e-mail to admin@ayrshirecs.org

Every participant will receive a commemorative Silver Jubilee Medal.
