Update Local Member Mavis Paterson's Round Scotland Charity Ride 2023

Dear Members

I am sure many of you will be following Mavis on various Social Media outlets and even viewed feature on ITV Border News clip.

This morning the JustGiving reported funds for Macmillan Cancer Support was £54,927 - But there have been other cash donations, pledges and donations in kind.

I had two jobs in support, during these passed days - driving Support Van and yesterday, leading from Moffat - Castle Douglas.

The Moffat arrival at the Moffat Hall, included a later Birthday celebration; multi-generation involvement.

A really wonderful moment in Moffat - I was carrying a news paper clipping from 1994 - taken outside Moffat Hall, Mavis(and me), Steve Ovett PLUS 3 teenage Pipers(official welcome) for Mavis' original round Scotland Fund-Raiser.(1110 miles)

On Wednesday, at the Birthday party, I was introduced, not only to one of the original, teenage-Pipers, but her two daughters, who were there to present Birthday cards, made by pupils in their Primary School - and what a surprise the girls got when they saw their teenage Mum in the photo! A wonderful, inspirational link between the generations!

Last official Update was from the Macmillan, Stranraer  Fund Raising Committee and the Fund Raised £74,000
