Event raises charity cash
Generous shoppers raised charity cash at a special event in Livingston.
Visitors to The Centre, Livingston, raised £ 1000 for a local respite centre which helps children with complex disabilities, Sunndach, and Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity at its second One Great Day charity event.
Circus acts including contact jugglers, stilt walkers, hula hoppers and acrobats performed for shoppers throughout the day at the event, bringing a huge smile to many faces, and a live gold statue took shoppers of all ages by surprise as she moved to the sound of coins being donated.
Kids took part in arts and crafts with glitter tattoos and painted faces, whilst enjoying candy floss – all for donations which helped reach the final sum of £1000.
Debbi Dunlop, deputy charge nurse at Sunndach in Livingston, said: “We are hugely grateful to The Centre, Livingston for raising money for us at the weekend.
“The management team have continued to support us in many ways, including completely transforming our garden, making a lot of our children very happy, which we are immensely grateful for.”
Funds were also donated on the day by Aerial Adventures who donated £1 from their Adventure Passes, which covers all three action-packed activities including
