East Ren mums are limbering up for Pramathon.

And it's all in aid of three worthwhile charities.

For the very first East Renfrewshire Pramathon will take place in the popular Rouken Glen Park in September.

And a team of local mums are calling on others to join them in taking a walk with their prams through the picturesque park.

Two of the local mums who are organising the event also run local businesses aimed at youngsters.

Elle Steele, runs a local business called Rhythm Time which organises music classes for children from as young as tiny babies.

Shesaid: "The Pramathon is a new event that we hope will be come an annual charity event in the East Renfrewshire calendar.

"We're a group of local mums who get together and we wanted to organise a day of events for the whole family.

"It's based around the idea of the Pramathon – which is much more than a walk in the park.It's a chance for parents to get together, have a walk in the beautiful surroundings of Rouken Glen and to raise cash for three very worthwhile charities."

The charities being supported are: The Jennifer Brown Research Fund, Bluebell Day (which deals with issues of post natal depression), and The Tuberous Sclerosis Association.

Local mum Nicola Wilson runs Tranquil Tots and teaches parents how to provide baby massages to get babies more relaxed, as well as pampering sessions for mum.

Nicola explained that it's a day of exciting events for the whole family and not just for mums.

"As well as the Pramathon, we're organising a football tournament for the dads and there's a teddy bears picnic.

"So it's sure to be a fun-packed day for the whole family on 16 September."
