Fes­tive gifts in pipe­line for OAPs

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Some pen­sion­ers in the Cam­bus­lang East ward could be in line for a happy Christ­mas thanks to Half­way Com­mu­nity Coun­cil.

The group are look­ing at de­liv­er­ing Christ­mas ham­pers to 100 pen­sion­ers in the area.

Plans for the ham­pers were put to a meet­ing of Half­way Com­mu­nity Coun­cil last week.

Sec­re­tary Jackie Rinn told the meet­ing the group were ex­pect­ing a sec­ond dona­tion from FunTas­tic Events, who have run fun­fairs in Half­way Park.

Ear­lier in the year, the group re­ceived £ 500 from Alan New­some of FunTas­tic Events.

With more fund­ing seem­ingly on its way, the com­mu­nity coun­cil will now look to us­ing it to ben­e­fit lo­cal pen­sion­ers.

Ms Rinn told the meet­ing: “FunTas­tic Events have been re­ally good for this com­mu­nity.

“We want to put { this fund­ing back} into the com­mu­nity.”

De­tails of the pro­posal are still to be fi­nalised and the group stated they were look­ing for lo­cal busi­nesses to get in­volved.
