Superheroes support breakfast club venture
Bikers, Captain America, Spiderman and Frozen’s Elsa will stride into Rutherglen this weekend to throw their weight behind a community fundraiser.
The superheroes will be at Universal Connections to entertain youngsters and raise cash for the organisation’s holiday breakfast club.
The event on Saturday, June 17, will see the bikers drive down Rutherglen Main Street before parking at the youth club for pictures.
Here they will be joined by superheroes and volunteers armed with face painting kits and glitter tattoos.
There will be activities and a host of stalls selling everything from home baking to hair accessories, wax melts, aloe vera and glitter gifts plus a tombola.
Entry to the event costs £2 for adults and the price includes refreshments. Children go free.
An important fundraiser, all money from the event will go towards a summer breakfast club which aims to bring people of all ages together for breakfast three times a week.
Universal Connections’ Lizzie McDonald explained: “This is a fantastic event for such a good cause. We have a great group of volunteers from the community who really want to work hard to change things in the local area.
“We are coming together to put on a fun event for everyone, plus raising money for an exciting cause.”
The breakfast club will run on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays during the summer from 9.30am to 11.30 am. Anyone can attend, but children must be accompanied by an adult.
Volunteers running the club have all gained their food hygiene qualifications and been trained in first aid. A Cambuslang man is expected to appear in court after it was claimed his dogs attacked two others outside his home.
Mohammed Kashif Khan’s two brown French mastiffs are said to have overcome a fence at Wellshot Drive and entered the public pavement on December 17 last year.
They are alleged to have attacked two highland terriers by repeatedly biting them to their injury.
The court diet was adjourned on May 22 for witness issues and Khan is set to reappear at Glasgow Sheriff Court on August 17.
