Kids invited to draw and win in aid of East Ren Good Causes

Calling all budding artists — Nicol Estate Agents and East Renfrewshire Good Causes want your dream home drawings.

The Newton Mearns firm is a regular supporter of the local charity, which funds good deeds for the area’s most vulnerable.

Now, children aged 5-16 years are asked to give the charity a further boost, by entering the company’s Draw a House competition, with all proceeds from a small entry fee going to East Ren Good Causes.

Douglas Nicol told The Extra: “Every day we see houses of all shapes and sizes, and we thought it would be fun to see what children think is the perfect home — while at the same time helping a great local charity.”

It’s a minimum £2 donation per entry, payable at

In return, winning entries in several categories will win a Kindle E-Reader.

The competition is open until December 15, and entries can be emailed in at or handed in to the office with contact details included on the back.

The Nicol Estate Agents competition has already raised £190 of a £500 target, and ERGC founder Russell Macmillan thanked all involved —including generous parents, and those talented youngsters putting pen to paper.
