A GROUP of vul­ner­a­ble chil­dren from the East End have been treated to a fun day out at River­side Mu­seum.

Thanks to the pub­lic do­nat­ing £27,000, more than 1000 Scots young­sters have been able to en­joy a day away.

Around 140 chil­dren and fam­i­lies sup­ported by Quar­ri­ers Fam­ily Re­source cen­tre in the East End had the chance to visit the mu­seum be­fore tuck­ing into lunch.

The Ruc­hazie group is also plan­ning a trip to Troon in early Au­gust which will in­volve 170 young­sters and their fam­i­lies vis­it­ing the Ayr­shire beach for sun, sea and sand­cas­tles.

The trips form part of Quar­ri­ers’ 2017 sum­mer ap­peal which asked peo­ple to give up one day and give chil­dren a day to re­mem­ber.

Those to ben­e­fit in­clude young­sters with dis­abil­i­ties, chil­dren liv­ing in poverty, young car­ers and young peo­ple who re­quire res­i­den­tial sup­port.

Around 140 chil­dren and their fam­i­lies took part in the day trip. Above Eashar, aged 2
