We took time out today to meet up with Barry Watt of Blantyre Community Committee and were delighted to hand over the sum of £250.00!
The significant sum is intended to help out with the running costs of this years Festive Event, which will take place at the Leisure Centre and nearby McAnulty Public Park on Sunday 24th November 2019.
Barry graciously accepted and added, “This donation will make a huge difference in helping us ensure the public event is free for everybody to attend. We sincerely appreciate it. Thank you so much!”
Thousands of people are expected to visit the annual Blantyre festive event which will once again have a market of over 60 stalls, fairground, live acts on stage, Santa and of course, lots to do.
This donation was made possible with thanks to a very generous, recent anonymous donation made to Blantyre Telegraph. Further donations to other groups will follow this week.
