Aldi’s spooky treat for kids

Rutherglen Reformer - - Health Matters -

There was a spook­tac­u­lar boost for a group of Half­way young­sters last week.

Ha l f w ay Pa r e nt and Tod­dler Group in Cam­bus­lang were given a se­lec­tion of spe­cial Hal­lowe’en gifts from the new Aldi su­per­mar­ket that re­cently opened in School Av­enue in Cam­bus­lang.

The group, which meets in North Half­way Hall, re­ceived a se­lec­tion of prod­ucts from Aldi’s Mamia and Hal­lowe’en Spe­cial­buys ranges, as well as cof­fee and snacks for the par­ents.

Aldi ar­ranged the do­na­tion as part of its on­go­ing com­mu­nity en­gage­ment strat­egy.

Aldi area man­ager, Kirsty Cribbes, said: “We’ve had a fan­tas­tic morn­ing with the Half­way Par­ent and Tod­dler Group, and we hope our do­na­tion will support the great work they do in the area.

“Aldi prides it­self on en­gag­ing with the lo­cal com­mu­nity, and we look for­ward to work­ing with more groups in the fu­ture.”

The Half­way Par­ent and Tod­dler Group runs classes ev­ery Mon­day and Wed­nes­day dur­ing school term time, be­tween 10am and 11.30am.

The group have toys and games for chil­dren to en­joy un­der parental su­per­vi­sion and par­ties at Christ­mas, with a visit from Santa.

The young­sters marked re­ceiv­ing their fan­tas­tic Hal­loween gifts with a party, where they dressed up in cos­tumes rang­ing from witches, princesses and skele­tons to char­ac­ters like the Su­per Mario Brothers and Bat­man.

They also had some scary fun and games as well as the snacks.

Anne Dun­can, the trea­surer for the Half­way Par­ent and Tod­dler Group, was de­lighted with the gifts.

She said: “We would like to thank Aldi for their kind do­na­tion which we will use to help pro­vide va­ri­ety to the chil­dren’s snack time.”
