After taking River City’s ‘Sheildinch’ and the Edinburgh’s Fringe Festival by storm, Gary Lamont now sets his sights on Balloch Castle Country Park on Saturday 28 October as he takes on the CHAS Devil Dash – and he wants you to join him!
The Hallowe’en themed family event welcomes women, men and children to walk or run either the devilish 6.66km route or the delightful 3.33km to help the charity that provides the only hospice services in Scotland for babies and children with incurable conditions.
Actor, singer and comedian, Gary Lamont, said: “It was such a privilege to visit Robin House and to see first-hand how important the care and support CHAS provides really is. The hospice was filled with so much joy and happiness and I am so excited about taking on the Devil Dash on 28 October to help keep the joy alive for the families it cares for. If you haven’t already registered - do it now! Get your devil horns at the ready, and join me!”
Each week in Scotland three children die because of an incurable condition. Today, CHAS can only reach one of those families to provide the support they deserve. CHAS will not stop until they can reach EVERY family, to provide invaluable care and support where and when it is needed.
By taking part in the CHAS Devil Dash, everyone can help to achieve this mission.
CHAS is Scotland’s national children’s hospice service and cares for families and their babies, children and young people by offering palliative care, family respite and support at its two hospices, Rachel House and Robin House. It has a CHAS at Home team, who bring its services into families’ homes throughout the whole of Scotland, as well as teams working in communities and hospitals across the country.
