Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Edel Ke­nealy

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.
