A Chris­tian or­gan­i­sa­tion that helps young peo­ple stay safe af­ter a night out has re­ceived a cash boost.

Pais­ley Street Pas­tors goes out into the town at week­ends and helps any­one who is worse for wear or in dis­tress.

The can be any­thing from phon­ing for a taxi for them or hand­ing out flip-flops to women whose high heels have be­come a too painful to walk in.

The in­ter­de­nom­i­na­tional or­gan­i­sa­tion is now £50 bet­ter off thanks to the mem­bers who make up the Knit2Gether so­cial group that meets at the YMCA in Pais­ley every Thurs­day af­ter­noon.

A cheque for the amount was handed over to the group’s Roy and Ch­eryl Adair, who gave a talk to the club on what they do.

Mr Adair said: “Our motto is ‘Car­ing, lis­ten­ing and help­ing’ and we are de­lighted to re­ceive the £ 50 which will help us with what we do.”

Irene Lynch of the Knit2Gether group said she had not heard of Pais­ley Street Pas­tors un­til re­cently when Donna Haveron of Pais­ley YMCA told her all about them.

She added “I spoke to our ladies and we de­cided to give a do­na­tion.”
