Deafblind Scotland 10k Canal Race and 5k Fun Run
Deafblind Scotland’s canal run has been postponed until later in the year. We are very much looking forward to hosting the event again in the autumn and encourage interested runners to check out the website for further information. Deafblind Scotland has been successful recently in securing pledges of funding for the new Learning and Development Centre for deafblind people to be built on their “Field of Dreams” site in Lenzie. This is indeed good news and the latest pledge of £85,000 received means we have raised or had pledged just over £1,000,0000. We are now more than two thirds of the way towards our target of £1.3 million. However the pledges are time limited and dependent on raising the rest of the funds needed, that means raising £300,000 in funds for “Field of Dreams” over the next few months. This is top priority. Hence we have had to rearrange our events calendar for 2015 – hopefully – all the funds we need for “Field of Dreams” will be raised or pledged during 2015.
