This weekend, residents of East Renfrewshire will be out in force to help raise money for Muscular Dystrophy Campaign and the Army Benevolent Fund.
Tesco in Barrhead will be playing host during the three days of scheduled events which include: face-painting for all, a raffle – with the chance of winning a Tesco goody-filled hamper worth £150 and a car boot sale, which will take place on Sunday.
Margaret MacIver, head of Tesco Barrhead’s charity committee, said:
“We are staging the charity events over three days, from Friday the 9th of October through till Sunday the 11th.
“We are offering a great chance for everyone in our community to get involved and show that they care. Over the three days we hope to raise a total of £1500 so we really would like everyone in the surrounding areas to play a part.
“The car boot sale is our main event, we have already had a great response with over twenty people already signed up to take over one of our car parks for the day but as always we are looking for more.”
If you are unable to give your time this weekend you can still pledge a donation. If you would like to find out more information about the events taking place over the weekend or if you would like to find out how you can play your part contact Margaret MacIver, 0141 532 7319.
