Fam­ily is­sue party in­vite

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

The mother of a Cam­bus­lang lad who beat cancer is throw­ing a party to cel­e­brate - and she wants the whole com­mu­nity to join her.

Whit­ney Wat­son and Robert McGre­gor were left over­joyed last month when it was con­firmed their four-yearold son, Bobby McGre­gor, had been given the all-clear af­ter suf­fer­ing from lym­phoblas­tic leukaemia.

Lit­tle Bobby’s in­cred­i­ble story was re­vealed in the Re­former and he cap­tured the hearts of people all over Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang.

He un­der­went chemo­ther­apy nearly ev­ery day for three years be­fore be­ing told his treat­ment had fin­ished.

Whit­ney has now ar­ranged the fam­ily fun day for Septem­ber 2 at the New­ton Arms pub. Start­ing at 1pm, there will be a buf­fet, a candy cart, a bal­loon maker and a face painter.

Also pay­ing a visit will be Bobby’s favourite su­per­hero, Spi­der-Man.

Whit­ney said the day is not a fundraiser but just a chance for the com­mu­nity to cel­e­brate with the fam­ily.

She added:“I want ev­ery­one to come cel­e­brate with us, and I mean ev­ery­one.”

The day will start at 1pm.

A 22-year-old woman will stand trial for be­hav­ing in an ag­gres­sive man­ner.
