Alan Beaumont took part in the Deerness Valley Fun Run today to help raise money for the Band, he came 20th out of approx 150. Alan was joined on the run by Caroline Hughes who has nothing to do with the Band, so the Band would like to say a big thank you to Caroline. Between them they have raised to date £230. Alan is hoping (or not) to be accepted to run the Great North Run in September.
