The young members of Hillhead Helping Hands community group organised an Easter Egg collection, originally for local children.

Organiser Alicia Shepherd said: “The response from the local community and businesses resulted in not only every child from Hillhead Primary and Hillhead Early Years receiving an egg - but also every primary aged child in Merkland Primary.”

She added: “After that, we had an excess of 80 Easter eggs that we then donated to Campsie view Care Home because you're never to old for an Easter egg!”
