#FundraisingFriday: The Thistle Run

August 12, 2016

This ‪#‎FundraisingFriday‬ we want to say a huge thank you to The Mini Clan

The Clan are a Mini appreciation society, and they organise an annual event called The Thistle Run. This year it took place in May and saw hundreds of minis take to the road from The Falkirk Wheel to Anstruther in Scotland to enjoy a lovely Sunday afternoon and raise money for their two chosen charities, CLAPA and Anstruther RNLI Station. The event raised a record-breaking £8000 meaning that CLAPA will receive an incredible £4000!

Geraldine, Co-chair of CLAPA’s fantastic CLAPA Glasgow Branch, went along on the day with her family to speak to attendees about cleft and CLAPA’s work… and sell some CLAPA merchandise, of course!

The cheque presentation will be taking place in September, so please watch this space for more photos!
