Fans urged to help charity

FOOTIE fans are being urged to give up a ‘free’ hour to CLIC Sargent.

The charity is organising a Walk the Hour event at Fir Park stadium at 1am on Saturday, October 30.

Participants will finish at 2am, but with the clocks going back at that point, they will actually finish at the same time as when they started!

Agnes Banks, fundraising co-ordinator with CLIC Sargent, explained: “The event is a sponsored walk beginning at 1am, walking until 2am when the clocks go back to 1am - the idea being that you are giving your ‘free’ hour to raise funds for children with cancer in Scotland. This will help us to highlight how important that hour can be.

“As it is Hallowe’en weekend, fancy dress or Motherwell FC themed dress is optional. Registration will be £5 for adults and free for children with all adults being asked to raise a minimum sponsorship of £50, children will also have a sponsor form and will simply be asked to raise whatever they can.”

To register or for more information, call Agnes on 0141 572 5700, text ‘BALL’ to 07766 280370 or e-mail glasgow@clicsargent.org.uk.
