Dalmellington's Hillbilly 10k Success

Butterfly Events hosted their annual Hillbilly 10k race in aid of Cancer Research UK on Sunday 10th October and the staff at Doon Valley Leisure Centre were delighted to be able to offer use of the Centre and facilities for the event.

270 runners (and a few dogs) donned kilts, the famous Hillbilly buff and took part in the 7th Hillbilly 10k, raising over £5500 for the charity.

Lorna Dempsey, founder of Butterfly Events said

“WOW what a day….everything was a huge success. I would like to thank you so much for your support in sponsoring our overall winner trophy and allowing us the use of your facilities for our Hillbilly 10k.  After the past 18 months, we are so grateful for your support, allowing us to host a hugely successful face to face event again, with many new people! Everyone involved was so happy to be at another Butterfly Event and we didn't disappoint. The weather, freebies, the buffet, the trophies and medals were all a huge success. Your team were outstanding and a huge asset to you, I am grateful for their support. We are thrilled to have raised £5500 from the event which is an amazing amount. Without support like yours we would never be able to organise our events nor raise so many funds, so we are extremely grateful, thank you”

East Ayrshire Leisure and the team at Doon Valley Leisure Centre are delighted to be able to support such events and a huge congratulations and well done to everyone who took part in the event and raised an amazing amount of money for Cancer Research UK.
