RIS­ING STARS

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

A Cam­bus­lang pair have be­come TV stars af­ter ap­pear­ing in an ad­vert for fos­ter care.

Daw­son Sin­clair, 7, and Ni­amh Lewsley, 8, ap­pear in the Kib­ble Ed­u­ca­tion and Care Cen­tre ad and were filmed en­joy­ing them­selves around Largs in North Ayr­shire.

The pri­mary three pupils at St Bride’s Pri­mary School spent three days on the beach and in the town as well as mak­ing the short trip to Mill­port.

They both helped with the ap­peal to en­cour­age more peo­ple into fos­ter car­ing.

Daw­son said: “It was fun to make the ad­vert with my friend Ni­amh. We know that it will be used to help other chil­dren find a home. I can’t wait to see it on the TV.”

Daw­son’s mum, Ali­son said the two kids had a lot of fun when film­ing.

She added: “They were look­ing for chil­dren to star in a ten minute film and they asked me if Daw­son would be in­ter­ested. Kib­ble then turned it into an ad­vert.

“I put him for­ward and he was a bit ap­pre­hen­sive at first but he re­ally en­joyed film­ing.

“He’s re­ally into his singing and drama and Ni­amh is in drama theatre.

“They were down the beach and spent time with the fos­ter par­ents. They filmed a full day with them and at the fos­ter care unit.”

Kib­ble, a Ren­frew­shire char­ity that pro­vides care for vul­ner­a­ble young peo­ple, de­vel­oped its In­ten­sive Fos­ter­ing Ser­vice (IFS) which is de­signed to give the child greater sup­port than tra­di­tional fos­ter­ing ser­vices.

Head teacher at St Brides, Amanda Maguire, said: “We are all very proud and de­lighted that two of our pupils, Daw­son and Ni­amh, are in­volved in this very im­por­tant and worth­while ap­peal. We are all very ex­cited and look­ing for­ward
