Late Christ­mas present for Jeely club

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

A pop­u­lar Castlemilk day care cen­tre for chil­dren has re­ceived a late Christ­mas gift.

Rep­re­sen­ta­tives from the Jeely Piece Club re­ceived a cheque for £526 from the Braes Shop­ping Cen­tre.

The cen­tre raised the money through their Santa’s grotto over the fes­tive period.

Par­ents paid £3 for their kids to meet St Nick as well as re­ceive a Cad­bury’s se­lec­tion box and five small toys.

Kids were able to take as many pic­tures of Santa as they wanted while em­ploy­ees Bernie Whe­lan and Ann Qua acted as elves.

All the money taken was do­nated to the Jeely Piece Club.

The cen­tre even threw in a copy of FIFA17 for the Plays­ta­tion 3 for good mea­sure.

Grace La­mont, head of play ser­vices at the Jeely Piece Club, said:“I would like to thank all of those in­volved in the fundrais­ing events. It is such a kind and un­ex­pected ges­ture.

“We will be­gin dis­cus­sions with the chil­dren as to how and what we should spend the money on. The chil­dren are also set to make a thank you card for the Braes staff.”
