Dig deep for charity events

KIND-HEARTED locals are being urged to dig deep and attend a number of charity events in the area.

Motherwell girls Allana Farrell and Lisa Clark are holding a charity night for Yorkhill Children’s Hospital on Saturday, August 27.

The event is being held in the Centenary Suite at Fir Park Stadium at 7.30pm and as well as a disco, there will be a raffle taking place with some great prizes. The girls want to thank local businesses for their donations, and tickets can be purchased at the door on the night. The cost for adults is £5 with a free raffle ticket and £2 for kids with a free face paint.

Then the Franklins Bar in Bellshill is hoping to raise cash for CHAS by hosting a family fundraising day on Sunday, September 4.

There will be a cabaret and bouncy castle for the kids at the event which is on from 4pm to midnight.

Tickets costing £3 are available at the pub.
