Record-break­ing do­na­tion for sick kids

Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser - - News -

hun­dreds of fam­i­lies from all across Scot­land that ben­e­fit from stay­ing in the House through­out such dif­fi­cult times, we would like to thank Alis­tair, his fam­ily and neigh­bours and the many, many peo­ple who helped raise this mag­nif­i­cent do­na­tion.

“Their sup­port gives sick chil­dren what they want most; their fam­i­lies by their side through­out their time in hos­pi­tal.

“Ev­ery year since 2006, Alis­tair has col­lected more money than the pre­vi­ous year and this lat­est do­na­tion has bro­ken his pre­vi­ous record.

“The char­ity re­lies solely on do­na­tions and fundrais­ing ini­tia­tives like Alis­tair’s Christ­mas lights dis­play to keep the doors of the House open each year.”

Alis­tair would like to thank Jan­ice Kirk­land for “her in­valu­able help with the Face­book page”, Gary, Thomas and John Smith for con­struc­tion sup­port, Bank of Scot­land’s Coat­bridge branch and the Tesco store at Fara­day Re­tail Park, par­tic­u­larly char­ity cham­pion El­iz­a­beth Wilkie.

Alis­tair is pic­tured (above) pre­sent­ing his lat­est do­na­tion to (L-R) Ron­ald McDon­ald House fundrais­ers Stephanie Beglin and He­len Craig and mas­cot Ted McDon­ald.
