Bute’s latest donation to the work of the Yorkhill Children’s Charity has been handed over at The Buteman’s office.

Kate Thornton from the local Yorkies fund-raising group presented a cheque for £800 to YCC fund-raiser Claire Hughes.

The sum raised for the charity - formerly known as the Yorkhill Children’s Foundation - includes £103 from St Andrew’s Primary School as well as donations from members of the public who collect small coins during the course of the year and hand them in to Kate’s workplace at Nadia’s Hair and Beauty.

The Yorkhill Children’s Charity provides and supports excellence in paediatric, obstetric and neonatal healthcare enhancing the treatment, care and wellbeing of children and their families through The Royal Hospital for Sick Children at Yorkhill and other hospital and community based services both nationally and internationally.

Claire said: “From a broken arm to end of life care, from simple play activities to innovative medical equipment and ground breaking paediatric research, our driving passion is to fund any initiative, large or small, that helps to save or improve the life of a child and by association positively affect the lives of their family.”
