Another wonderful community event in Dunkeld this weekend, the annual Peaks & Trails (ultra marathon, ‘normal’  marathon, 22 Km run, 10 Km run, more categories too including a 100 m dash). Thank you to the committee of this event for such a professional, enjoyable and fabulous time.
The DRASS group had a chance to sell soup – 12 different selections on offer and we sold out! Another $725 (approx.) will help out where it is needed. Thank you to the wonderful volunteers who come together as always.
