ON Saturday, April 16th there was a cracking day for all the family at Stornoway’s Bridge Community Centre, as big hearted young people raised £490 for local charity ‘The Leanne Fund’.
It was the brainwave of Chloe Campbell and Shannen Crossley from S1 who wanted to do something for the community, and they certainly did!
On offer on the day were classic and rally car rides, face painting, bouncy castle, the police dog demonstration, an interactive North West All Star Cheer, henna tattoos, chocolate fountains and raffle.
The girls were supported by Christine Thompson and Jade King from the Bridge Community Centre who helped the girls make the day a success.
It’s great to see young people using their skills positively, not only providing a great day for families but encouraging and supporting a very worthwhile local charity.
Willie Mitchell from the Leanne Fund was present and found to be in possession of an illegal substance, thankfully it had been planted there for the purposes of the police dog demonstration!
Christine Thompson said: “Shannon and Chloe should be very proud of all their hard work at making the day a huge success. it was fantastic to see young and old alike to come along and share in such a great cause.
“A small girl standing at the chocolate fountain stand told me “these are the best chocolate strawberries ever”. a great compliment!
“We have some very talented cake decorators as seen at the ‘decorate your own cupcake’ stall. some very interesting designs, helped along by Abby Ferguson.
“Nearing the end of the day, i overheard a young boy saying to his dad, “aww is it time to go? I want to stay on the bouncy castle..”
A great time was had by all and a huge thanks to all who contributed and also those who helped out on the day.”.
