Christmas comes early for charity festive bash

A charity event is giving shoppers the chance to start filling their Christmas stockings.

East Dunbartonshire Provost, Una Walker, will be hosting a charity ladies lunch and Christmas shopping event on Sunday, November 1 in aid of St Margaret of Scotland Hospice and Cash for Kids.

It takes place in the Eagle Lodge, in Bishopbriggs, from 12.30pm with a two course lunch being served at 1.30pm.

Provost Walker said: “This is probably one of my favourite events of the year. It provides an opportunity for some excellent ‘me time’ and a good reason to catch up with friends or family over a lovely lunch in this excellent restaurant and buy those unusual Christmas presents that can’t be found in the shops.
