Pollok fireman taking part in Glasgow half marathon for Scottish SPCA

The Scottish SPCA is delighted that animal lover and Pollok fire fighter Grant Carnachan has decided to take on the challenge of running the Bank of Scotland Great Scottish Run Half Marathon in Glasgow in full fire kit and breathing apparatus.

Grant CarnachanGrant chose to support us as it’s a charity that has always been close to his heart.
Glasgow Centre Manager Anna O’Donnell said, “We have a huge amount of respect for anyone who sets themselves such a challenge and it’s something to be very proud of.

“By taking part in fundraising events like this, our supporters are helping us care for more abused, abandoned and abused animals.

“We really admire Grant’s dedication as he’s running with full equipment and breathing apparatus, which weighs around 23kg, so it won’t be an easy run.

“As we rely solely on the generosity of the public to help us care for abused, abandoned and neglected animals each year, we’re appreciative of all donations, big or small.

“We wish Grant all the very best for the big day on Sunday.”
Grant Carnachan said, “I’m raising money for the Scottish SPCA and The Fire Fighters Charity and want to help them as much as I can, they’re great charities and I see this as my way of being able to give back to them.

“I was recently on holiday in Mauritius but that didn’t stop me training – instead I had a beautiful view running along the beach and also did some training at the resort gym.”
