Back to Bellahouston


Back in June, my own wee tour of Scotland (well, a few bits of it anyway!) started from outside Bellahouston Leisure Centre in Glasgow. This Sunday, a young lad called Kris Rodden will be starting another walk from the very same place. Kris' mum has dementia, same as my mum. His mum was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease when she was just 59.

Kris and a lot of other people, including Tom Urie from River City and Davie Anderson from City Lights, will be doing a sponsored 10K at Bellahouston in aid of Alzheimer Scotland's services in Glasgow and East Dunbartonshire this Sunday at 10am. I'll be there too. If you can come along, you'll be made very welcome. To find out more, you can read Kris' Facebook page or his Justgiving page.
