Members of Fraserburgh JogScotland are putting their energy into raising funds for Fraserburgh Heritage Centre.

The group is holding a fun run on Tuesday, August 16, and members are encouraging everyone to come along and join in the fun.

Organiser, Gillian Strachan told the Herald: “We were made aware of the plight facing Fraserburgh Heritage Centre following funding cuts and wanted to do something to help secure the future of this hidden gem.

“Our members thought a fun run would be a good idea, encouraging people to become active and support a very worthwhile cause at the same time - preserving our heritage.”

The fun run, which is open to everyone, members and non-members, will hopefully attract people from across the area.

Gillian continued: “All levels of fitness are welcome to come along and take part as people can walk the routes too and with the choice of 3K, 6K and 10K routes, there is something for everyone, you do not need to be a member of JogScotland.

“Children under the age of 14 can take part in the 3K although they will need a parent with them.

“We will be leaving Fraserburgh Heritage Centre car park at around 6.45pm and will follow the coastal path along towards Sandhaven, this is a beautiful route with a fantastic surface for walking, jogging or running with beautiful scenery to enjoy along the way.”

Registration for the event starts at 6pm continuing until 6.30pm with entrants asked to make a donation, rather than pay an entrance fee.

All funds raised will then be donated to Fraserburgh Heritage Centre.

Gillian added: “Fraserburgh Heritage Centre will be open on the evening of the fun run so hopefully people who maybe haven’t been in before can pop in and see what it is all about and then return with their children at a later date.”
