An Arbroath businesswoman has taken the idea behind the Bridal March charity 10K and run with it by promising to take part in a wedding dress!
Jenny Traill will be running in the annual fund-raiser at Camperdown Park on Sunday and as co-owner of ‘The Cherished Bride’ shop on Cairnie Street felt it fitting to wear a proper wedding dress!
She has been partner in the business for just over a month with best friend Nicky Bews, and it was her idea to enter.
Jenny said: “Nicky came across this race and we have both done a bit of running since last year - so thought we would just go for it in the hope of fund-raising for a local charity to promote our new business venture, which I’m sure is going to thrive in Arbroath. Unfortunately Nicky is busy the weekend of the race, so it’s up to me!”
This is no ordinary wedding dress with a mile-long train to trip over as Jenny explained: “I’m lucky to have a beautiful wedding dress that I got altered for last Halloween.
“It’s only three-quarter length - so I am sure there’s no chance of me tripping in it. It was a dress from the shop and altered for me by a friend.
“The only issue I may have is the sweat from the heat of running and the dress being awful material to ‘mop’ it up. I’m hoping its a cloudy day with a bit of a chill! That will be perfect.”
All money raised through the Bridal March will go to the MECP2 Duplication Fund at Reverse Rett through The Blake McMillan Trust.
