That the Parliament congratulates Ross Bark, from Stranraer in Dumfries and Galloway, on completing his challenge to run four miles every four hours over a 48-hour period; notes that Ross, locally known as the Road Runner due to his children’s entertainment business, undertook the challenge to raise money for a Stranraer care home, Thorney Croft, which was unfortunate to have been directly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and lost 14 residents; understands that Ross would like the money raised to go towards a memorial for the care home's garden or a day out for residents and staff once life returns to some normality; commends Ross on already reaching over £2,7825 in donations and wishes him, and all staff and residents at Thorney Croft, well for the future.
