Appeal gathers huge gift haul


A Christmas gift appeal in Airdrie has gathered a huge haul of donations for local children.

This year’s kind-hearted initiative at Jackson Church in Petersburn collected a host of toys and gifts for youngsters in the Craigneuk and Petersburn communitie­s.

Thanks to the generosity of church minister Reverend Kay Gilchrist and her helpers, many kids will now enjoy extra surprises this festive season.

Reverend Gilchrist said: “i would like to say a big thank you to church members and the local community of Craigneuk and Petersburn for their generosity.”
