The University of Glasgow Girls
 
 
The ladies from The School of Life Sciences took part in the first ever Pretty Muddy ‘Race for Life’ held in Bellahouston Park, Glasgow.

This group of women decided no matter what, they were going to run this race together.  The three photos depict them before the race, during and after.  The second picture is perhaps the most poignant of the three as it clearly shows them at the bottom of the ‘pig bath’ where they had joined hands together at the top to go down this muddy slide together.  That was there theme ‘together’ and along with ‘Race for Life’ also uses the mantra ‘together we can beat cancer.’ 

The sense of team effort was quite overwhelming, as the spectators in the fore of the picture commented on the ladies coming down the giant chute holding hands.  It’s that sense of togetherness as a team that makes a difference in what can be achieved.

 
 

 

These photos and this editorial have been added to help you reflect on what can be achieved when you’re part of team.  It highlights that even just a handful of committed people, all looking out for each other then we can build together something special and unique.

If you or anyone close to you has been affected by Cancer we want you to know that our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time.  If you want to be proactive in taking part in charity fundraising events for Cancer Research UK, Race for Life or St Margaret’s of Scotland, Hospice then please send us an email.

A Great Charity Doing Great Works
 
 
JAM (Joint Aid Management) is a South African founded registered non-profit humanitarian organisation that has been expanding its expertise in relief and sustainable development in Africa since 1984.
 
JAM provides highly nutritious meals to nearly a million African children every school day. Diet and  nutrition play a critical role in the physical and intellectual development of children. Their school feeding  programmes enable them to improve the well being of each child, while promoting and enhancing school  attendance and education. Beneficiaries receive a serving of a Fortified Blended Food each school day,  which provides them with approximately 75% of the recommended daily allowance of protein. Teacher  training and infrastructure are implemented to compliment the feeding programme and create  environments conducive to education. Through daily feeding through schools, clinics and welfare programmes, they hope to ultimately enhance the future role of these children in society.  
 
JAM currently assists around 1.1 million beneficiaries daily through its Nutritional Feeding programme and wider community development activities. Their vision is to transform African communities by developing viable social enterprise and to empower Africans to create better lives for themselves. 
 
         
 
 
Fish and Chip Night
 
We had a great night of fun and fellowship, celebrating Burns Night with several contributions of Scottish  poetry, songs and other traditional fun. Everyone enjoyed a somewhat less than traditional but still very Scottish Chippy Tea, with everyone's suppers going down a treat.
 
Many thanks to everyone who arranged a great night, performed and came along and supported the event.
