Watch US Grow has had an eventful few months recently. Our weekends have been filled with Plant Sales throughout Cumbernauld and Nursery Needs have been doing their Pop Up Shop in the Town Centre.
On Monday the 18th of May, a group of students, past and present from Watch Us Grow and some members of staff, took part in a 10K Sponsored Walk around Cumbernauld.
This is an annual event for Watch Us Grow in an effort to raise funds and also have a lot of fun, which was certainly the case this year!
There was worry throughout the day that the walk would need to be postponed or even shortened due to the extremely bad rain that hit that morning, we did however remain optimistic!
Then, low and behold only a mere hour before the walk was due to start, the skies cleared and out came the sun!!
The Walk started at 4pm and we all began at St. Mungo’s church in Cumbernauld. Some of the group then made their way towards The Legion to carry on with the 10K, and another group took part in a smaller walk as they could perhaps not manage the full walk.
Our walk took us through Cumbernauld, The Village and Kildrum, eventually finishing back at St. Mungo’s, and we completed the walk in a record time of 1hr and 35 minutes!!
We were very fortunate to miss the rain, but we did get soaked in the last 2 minutes of the walk, and this was a welcome shower though as it was very warm and we needed a wee cool down!
As we said before, everyone involved had a great time and we also got a good bit of exercise at the same time!
Everyone has helped raised a lot of money for Watch US Grow, and we would like to say a huge Thank You to all who took part!
