Alison’s charity birthday bash

A KIND HEARTED Bearsden woman has asked her friends to donate cash to the children’s cancer unit at Yorkhill Children’s Hospital instead of buying her a birthday present this year - for the TENTH year running.

Alison Carey celebrates her 49th birthday at the Ellangowan Social Club, Milngavie, on Saturday, March 3 at 7pm with a party.

There will be live music from Milngavie band Playback and a raffle with some great prizes up for grabs, including a £20 voucher for a meal at Cafe India in Merchant City. Last year’s party raised £1,750 bringing her total to £14,010 for the Schiehallion Unit.

Alison said: “Once again I look forward to seeing everyone on the night who supports this worthy cause.

“If I can help to make a special moment for a child who has an illness - I have done something worthwhile.”

Tickets cost £5 and are available by phoning Alison on 07791149945.
