Combat Stress Mini Run

Thursday 6th July 2017

13 club members with 6 MX-5’s (don’t worry no one was squeezed in to a boot, Marcia attended in her own car) met at Hollybush House, home for Combat Stress in Scotland, where we were greeted by Kath Provan (Combat Stress Scottish Fundraising Manager) along with some of the residents.   
After exchanging pleasantries and receiving a lot of grateful thanks for our donation of £450 and continued support, we formally handed over the cheque and posed for a few photos.   

We then said our goodbyes hoping to be able to return next year and made the short drive to Hollybush Inn for a delicious meal, especially some of the meat supplied by our friendly local butcher!!!

Feeling well fed, we set off on our mini run heading along the back roads of Ayrshire, through Dalrymple (which must win the award for most speed bumps in a village) towards Maybole, where we all manged to negotiate the A77 with no problems. 
We then turned towards Ayr heading along the coast road, going down the “Electric Brae” with a lovely view of Culzean Castle.  Unfortunately, the dull weather meant that Arran wasn’t visible at all, just a big bank of cloud and Ailsa Craig only very faintly. 
A good run on clear roads took us to Ayr and our finish at the Low Green car park on Ayr Esplanade, just by “Ayr India” in case anyone was feeling a bit peckish (no-one was).    All thoughts of a wonderful sunset over Arran were again thwarted by the weather, however we all enjoyed a good chat, watching the local cruisers negotiate the speed mountains as well as being checked out by the Police, prior to heading off home.

Thank you to all those who attended the run, it was very nice to catch up with old friends again and to everyone who has supported the raffles over the past year, our donation was very well received and will really help all those at Hollybush House.
