Su­per day at charity fundraiser

Rutherglen Reformer - - Cah For Kids - Dou­glas Dickie

Asda To­ry­glen en­joyed two days of fundrais­ing in-store to sup­port Cash For Kids.

On Fri­day, May 5, Or­chard Grove Kinder­garten and Lit­tle Pets Play­group en­ter­tained the cus­tomers by per­form­ing songs and po­ems while dressed as su­per­heroes.

Staff at the store were en­cour­aged to dress up for the event and Cash For Kids t-shirts were on big de­mand.

Then, on Satur­day, May 6, the 1st Bankhead Guides gave up their time to bag pack for Cash For Kids.

Later in the af­ter­noon the cus­tomers were en­ter­tained by 16-year-old Matthew Gibb from King’s Park.

Cash for Kids raises money year­round for chil­dren across Glas­gow and the west.

Ev­ery penny raised in the west of Scot­land stays here, so you can be sure that your sup­port will di­rectly ben­e­fit a lo­cal child, with 100 per cent of ev­ery pound do­nated go­ing back into the com­mu­nity Over the two days £765 was raised. El­iz­a­beth Ar­buckle, com­mu­nity cham­pion at Asda To­ry­glen, said: “I would like to thank our cus­tomers who are al­ways so gen­er­ous and so sup­port­ive.

“I also want to thank ev­ery­one who helped on the day to make this event a great suc­cess.”
