Thanks to everybody who took part and for all the incredible entries. There’s so much talent and fun out there!! Of course this was all for a purpose. As it stands today nearly £2,700 has been raised by NHS Lanarkshire but with some business donations still to be added tomorrow, the overall total is expected to be around £4,000 !! Every penny going to NHS in our area. Thats going to make a huge difference.

Well done to everybody who donated. There’s still time to donate here:
