Step out for Barshaw Big Heart Charity Walk

June 14, 2012

Local people are being urged to put their best foot forward for a big hearted charity walk on Tuesday.

The Barshaw Big Heart Charity Walk will take place on Tuesday 19 June to commemorate 100 years of Barshaw Park and to celebrate Paisley being a heart town.

A two mile walk begins from Paisley Town Hall at 11am, or you can join the group at Barshaw Park gate at 11.45am for a one mile walk around the park.

The theme is ‘red’ and those taking part are being asked to bring a donation (or sponsorship) as an entry fee with all proceeds going to the British Heart Foundation.

Councillor Iain McMillan, Convener of Renfrewshire Council’s Community and Family Care Policy Board, said: “We’re very proud that Paisley is a Heart Town and the Barshaw Big Heart Charity Walk is a wonderful opportunity for local people to contribute towards the British Heart Foundation, while getting active at the same time.

“I’m delighted that this will also celebrating the fact that Barshaw Park is 100 years old and I’d urge as many local people as possible to don their walking shoes and head along to enjoy some fresh air.”

Further information is available from Senga McLeod, walking development officer at senga.mcleod@renfrewshire.gov.uk or on 0141 889 1110.
