Bal­let Bees do so much bril­liant work and need to keep on go­ing

East Kilbride News - - NEWS - Colin Pater­son

Hello and wel­come to this week’s edi­tion of the East Kil­bride News.

Our front page story to­day, which you can read more about on page 7, is about a group called the Bal­let Bees.

What a lovely lit­tle club this is; live mu­sic and con­tem­po­rary dance for chil­dren with dis­abil­i­ties and, sadly, life-lim­it­ing ill­nesses.

The News has fea­tured the group many times be­fore but to­day they are send­ing out an SOS.

The threat of clo­sure hangs over the Bees un­less they can link up with an­other lo­cal club who can as­sist with vol­un­tary sup­port.

They have the venue, en­thu­si­asm and kids – but they need more help when it comes to putting on ses­sions.

Dr Lisa Cameron, the MP for East Kil­bride, Strathaven and Les­ma­hagow, has took up the fight and we en­cour­age any dance or com­mu­nity group to get in touch to see if you can be the Bees’ saviour.

It’s heart­break­ing to hear that chil­dren, for whom life is al­ready dif­fi­cult enough, could be de­nied ac­cess to a club which pro­vides them with so much joy and plea­sure.

We are con­fi­dent there are peo­ple out there who can help keep the Bees buzzing – we want to hear from you.

Else­where in the pa­per and you can treat your­self to one or two nice things from the shops at EK, East Kil­bride if you en­ter our com­pe­ti­tion to win a £50 gift card. See page 16 for de­tails.

Also, now that the lighter nights are here, go­ing out for a meal is an ap­petis­ing prospect and on page 36 we have a com­pe­ti­tion to win a £50 gift voucher for Di Mag­gio’s East Kil­bride.
