Evening Times - - NEWS -

THE man­ager of Jol­ly­tots and Cook­ies in Ud­dingston has been recog­nised as an un­sung hero.

For five years, Gail Gil­lon has opened the doors to her cafe on Christ­mas day to of­fer a feast and en­ter­tain­ment for more than 70 lonely peo­ple in need, pro­vid­ing ham­pers, gifts and trans­port fees for all who at­tend.

She has now been hon­oured with an award by food­ser­vice provider Bid­ford due to her ded­i­ca­tion to the hos­pi­tal­ity in­dus­try through­out the busi­est time of the year.

Gail said: “Open­ing our doors on Christ­mas has given me some of my hap­pi­est mem­o­ries run­ning the cafe. It’s a real joy to know I can make a pos­i­tive im­pact on peo­ple’s lives.”
