Ken Macintosh MSP has launched a gift collection drive with Barnardo’s, to make sure every child gets a Christmas this year.
Residents are asked to come forward with donations of books, toys or clothes for Eastwood Cares this Christmas, with all presents welcome at Ken’s constituency office at 1 Spiersbridge Way, Thornliebank, G46 8NG — open 9.30am-5.30pm Monday-Friday — until December 18.
The MSP and Eastwood Labour group are also hosting a collection point between 11am and 1pm on Saturday (December 12) at a stall on Clarkston’s main street.
Mr Macintosh said: “Even in our community it is unfortunately the case that not every child will enjoy the love and happiness we would wish for them at this time of year.
“With your help, we can ensure every child has a happy Christmas this year.”
