MEMBERS of the Ardrossan community are being invited to take part in a community 5k run, organised by Ardrossan Academy.

Taking place on Thursday, June 27 at 4pm, the school will be holding their first ever community 5k with everyone welcome to run, jog or walk the route.

Entry is just £1 and this can be paid on the day with proceeds being split between the school and the Three Towns Growers to go towards the purchase of a defibrillator.

The route will start at Ardrossan Academy, go along the prom towards Saltcoats and back to the school.

Anyone wishing more information should contact the school directly on 01294 461931.
