Some lo­cal Burn­side ladies en­joyed a tasty lunch for a good cause re­cently.

Burn­side women en­joyed a Ladies Lunch at Ciao Bella Ital­ian Res­tau­rant in Burn­side on Sun­day Au­gust 30, with the meal tak­ing place to sup­port Cash For Kids.

A to­tal of £550 was raised for the char­ity as a re­sult.

This is the sec­ond year that Ciao Bella held the lunch, with Re­nato and An­gela at the res­tau­rant help­ing to or­gan­ise the day.

The ladies en­joyed their three course lunch with en­ter­tain­ment from Ash­ley Don­ald­son and John Kelly.

El­iz­a­beth Ar­buckle, the Com­mu­nity Life Cham­pion at Asda To­ry­glen who or­gan­ised the event, said:“Due to the suc­cess of the day we are look­ing to make this an an­nual event for Burn­side.

“It was a great af­ter­noon and we would like to thank each and ev­ery one who bought a ticket and sup­ported with raf­fle prizes.”

Cash for Kids lends a help­ing hand to dis­abled and dis­ad­van­taged chil­dren aged 0 to 18 across Scot­land by means of their grant giv­ing process.

Grants awarded go to­wards buy­ing spe­cial­ist equip­ment for chil­dren to en­hance their qual­ity of life.

They are given to chil­dren’s char­i­ties and or­gan­i­sa­tions to help them un­der­take projects and new ini­tia­tives or to en­sure that much needed ser­vices can con­tinue to pro­vide es­sen­tial care and sup­port.

All the money raised on be­half of Cash for Kids stays in the area it was raised in pro­vid­ing a help­ing hand when and where it is needed most.
