STAFF at Asda Newton Mearns have raised £2,800 for Cash for Kids.

Store manager Fraser Stevenson was one of 22 Asda bosses tackling a series of sponsored cycles, walks and climbs in Arran recently.

Claire Rennie, Newton Mearns community life champion, said: “We also held a tombola, a 100 mile cycle relay, the boys from provisions did a triathalon and we raffled a 32 inch television and mountain bike.

“Customers and colleagues have been very generous, and all the money raised for Cash for Kids stays in the area. We feel very strongly about supporting our community.”
