Care home team to take on 10K for MarieCurie

Carers and residents from the Lisden Balhousie Care Home in Kirriemuir are set to joint other walkers this weekend at Glamis Castle in support of Marie Curie Cancer Care.

The castle grounds will be the venue on Saturday for the charity’s Walk Ten event, an evening walk with twilight entertainment to raise funds for the charity.

There is still time to be part of the action as registration will be at 5.30 p.m. and will cost £20 per adult, while children under 16 can take part for free.

The event starts at 6 p.m. and, following the 10k walk with the castle and grounds as its stunning backdrop, there will be entertainment for the whole family throughout the evening including live music and picnics.

Glamis Castle is famed as being the childhood home of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother, birthplace of HRH The Princess Margaret and part of the setting for Shakespeare’s ‘Macbeth’ and walkers can enjoy a twilight walk around its parks, gardens and streams as the sun sets.

Dogs will also be welcome to accompany their owners around the route.

Stacy Rowan, events manager for Walk Ten Scotland at Marie Curie, said: “Walk Ten is a unique event that gives people the chance to enjoy a summer evening with family and friends and walk in beautiful surroundings, followed by a festival atmosphere with activities for all ages.

“By taking part in Walk Ten at Glamis Castle and raising funds, you’ll be helping to make it possible for Marie Curie to provide more care to terminally ill patients, and vital emotional support to their families, at the time when they need it most.”
