The Denny hospice needs to bring in £10,000 of donations every single day to continue to support those with terminal illness, both at the hospice and at home.

To do so, Strathcarron is holding a road race, a talk from historian Neil Oliver and a ‘spooktacular’ in the coming weeks.

The popular Strathcarron 10k road race will go ahead this Sunday in Denny with hundreds of runners pounding the pavements for a good cause.

Historian and TV personality Neil Oliver will to do a talk for Strathcarron on Wednesday, October 7 at Macrobert in Stirling.

Holding Out For A Hero will focus on heroic people from Scotland’s past and the Stirling-based Coast and History of Scotland presenter is giving his time for free so all proceeds go to Strathcarron.

Tickets cost £12 and are available by calling Macrobert on or by calling 01786 466666.

On Halloween, Strathcarron is hosting a Spooky Wooky Walk at Callendar Park for younger children and a Terror Trail for bigger, braver types. The event for younger children features ghosting and guising, while the terror trail is a guaranteed scream-fest with zombies and scares round every turn. Both events run from 6-8pm on October 31. The hospice is looking for volunteers to take on parts as zombies and ghouls. If you would like to offer your services, call Coleena on (01324) 826222.
