Runners needed in Milngavie for a really good ‘Claus’

Members of a running group in Milngavie have organised a Santa Run on December 3.

Jog Scotland Milngavie will be setting off from Milngavie town clock at 6.30pm to raise funds for Milngavie foodbank in St Joseph’s Church, Milngavie.

This joint venture was established by four churches from Milngavie and Bearsden in February 2014 to cater for people in the area who are suffering from financial hardship.

The foodbank is open every Monday and Friday from 2pm to 3.30pm.

It is intended for one-off emergencies and anyone who wants to collect food must be referred by an agency such as their GP surgery or health centre.

Alistair Haydock from Jog Scotland Milngavie, said: “It’s that time of year when a lot of people don’t have much and we are just trying to do our bit to help those who are less fortunate than us.”

Please wear a Santa hat. Costs £5, you can just turn up on the night. Enjoy hot chocolate afterwards in Costa.
