YOU DID IT!

Absolutely bowled over by everyone's generosity and support for the arts in Dumfries & Galloway. Delighted to announce that I've passed my £500.00 fundraising target for this Sunday's Kirroughtree Duathlon, raising funds for The Vault Arts Centre. All I have to do now is run 10km and cycle 18km :S
