Smiles back on the faces of ill chil­dren

Ayrshire Post - - Bob Shields -

Mal­colm Sar­gent House has been mak­ing head­lines in this news­pa­per for decades . . . but in the last two years, the sto­ries be­neath them haven’t all been pleas­ant read­ing.

The Clic Sar­gent sell- out of their for­mer Prest­wick base was one of the cru­ellest acts to be­fall any good cause.

But last week’s “New Home for Mal­colm Sar­gent” made for happy read­ing again.

It’s a fan­tas­tic achieve­ment for BUYMSH chief Max­ine Al­lan and her huge team of vol­un­teer helpers.

And let’s not for­get to thank the “mys­tery bene­fac­tor” whose in­ter­est free loan helped pave the way.

Fig­ures re­veal that over £ 250,000 has been raised since CLIC went clunk.

But, as Max­ine un­der­lines, the new home needs even more funds to start es­sen­tial ren­o­va­tions and im­prove­ments.

My busi­ness is proud to have a BUYMSH col­lect­ing tin on its counter.

If you want to sup­port a well run, lo­cal char­ity that puts smiles back on the faces of chil­dren who have faced the tough­est hard­ships – this is it!
