Big Hearted Pair

Two members of the nursing staff from Psychiatric Services embarked on a 10k run for the British Heart Foundation and raised a tremendous £3,845.

Staff Nurse Duncan Westall and Nursing Assistant Paul McCaffery put in hours of training for the event following the sad passing of Duncan’s close friend Bob Mason from cardiomyothapy.

The route was designed to cover local places significant to Bob and his family. This encompassed various Falkirk landmarks including Falkirk Community Hospital, the Steeple in the town centre, the site of the old Brockville Football Stadium and the Forth and Clyde canal, which leads back around to Camelon.
