CHARITY Elf Run Being Held In Gourock

A CHARITY elf fun run in aid of children and young people’s charity Dreams Come True Inverclyde has been organised as part of Gourock’s Christmas lights switch-on weekend.

It will take place on Sunday 3 December at 11am leaving from outside Gourock Pool. Runners can go any distance up to five kilometres. 

A free elf hat is provided as part of registration and runners are being encouraged to dress up as an elf, with a prize for the best dressed.

The cost to enter, which includes a donation to Dreams Come True Inverclyde, is £6 per adult, £4 per child or £15 for a group of four. Registration is available online at  or by using leaflets available locally which can be completed and handed in at Treasured in Cardwell Road, The Pirate and Bluebell or Studio Flowers, both Kempock Street.

Entrants are being asked to try and raise personal sponsorship from their family, friends and colleagues of a minimum of £20 and there is a form for this purpose downloadable from the website link or from the three shops.

Chris Jewell, local co-ordinator for Dreams Come True Inverclyde said; "The Elf Fun Run is a great way of doing something special on behalf of our less fortunate young people and young adults in Inverclyde and we are grateful to Gourock Heritage and Arts for organising this occasion which will help to make more local dreams come true in the future.

Lynne Quinn, on behalf of Gourock Heritage and Arts, said: "We are excited to add this new venture to our Christmas activities in Gourock and hope that as many people as possible will come out and join us. The route is flat and also wheelchair friendly and we would really like as many wheelchair users as possible to be included."

Dreams Come True has been established for nearly 30 years across the UK and makes dreams happen for children and young adults aged two to 21 who have life-limiting medical conditions.
