Christmas Comes to Day Care
Posted by Birdston Day Care Centre
This year's Christmas Fayre at Birdston Day Care Centre in Kirkintilloch proved to be a resounding success with a fantastic turnout despite the fact that Santa nearly never made it due to illness! However last minute stand-in, in the shape of housekeeper Elaine McMillan's father-in-law, saved the day! Ably assisted by head elf Ashley, (one of our domestic assistants from Birdston Nursing Home), the children were all delighted with Santas Grotto and their gifts.
A further surprise was in store for our younger visitors when Olaf and Elsa from Frozen dropped in for some games, story-telling and a sing-a-long, much to everyone's delight... there was even a few 'selfie's' or two thrown in for good measure! For the grown-ups there was plenty of Christmas shopping with stalls galore of home baking, jewellery, gifts and so much more.
A fantastic day was had by all, with all funds raised being split between the residents funds for Birdston Nursing Home and Birdston Day Care, to fund special days out, entertainers and other treats over the festive period. Thank you to everyone who donated and came along on the day.
