Digging deep to help Chris’s House charity
Sophia Coyle has thanked the “extremely kindhearted” Monklands community for helping her raise a four-figure sum for Chris’s House.
The Airdrie North councillor hosted a night of musical entertainment in the town’s working men’s club in aid of the suicide prevention charity.
Ms Coyle ran the event in conjunction with her dad Michael and their fellow councillor Caroline Stephen.
Revellers partied the night away to a singer and disco while digging deep into their pockets to contribute to the fantastic £1250 total raised.
Ms Coyle said: “The charity night was a great success and people who came along were extremely kind-hearted.
“We raised a superb £1250 and I would like to thank everyone who donated to the cause.
“Chris’s House is a fantastic charity doing wonderful work and I would urge anyone who is needing help to get in touch with their excellent team of staff.
“Please don’t feel there is nowhere to turn to; Chris’s House will offer sterling support if you are struggling to cope with anything in life.”
The generous councillor added: “I would like to issue a big thank you to Bobby Clark, of the working men’s club and BC Travel, for all of his support.
“Thanks also go to Mears, local photographer Bob Coyle, BC Travel, Saltire, DMI Fire and Security, Millbank Decorators, Glenmavis Stores, Petersburn shops, Yvonne hairdressers, John Paul Smith, Anne Neilson, Sheena McCulloch, Kirsten McClory, Eddie Corson, June McGuinness, the Tipsy Cow, Mainland garage and Smiths Hotel.”
