Thistle Run raises £3250 for Troon Lifeboat
The Thistle Run is organised each year by The Mini Clan and raises money for charity. Each year the money raised is shared between two charities, one is the RNLI station at the end point, the other is a charity nominated by one of the Clan members, which this year was Macmillan Cancer Support
