All the fun of the Christmas Fair raised an impressive £1000 for Gartcosh Parish Church recently.

Dozens of local people turned out in force to donate to and support the event in the church hall.

Visitors could choose from a wide range of stalls, including home baking and arts and crafts, and there were prizes for the person who could guess Santa’s birthday.

Volunteer Minnie Coyle, said: “The church has two annual fairs and we always have one at Christmas. The day was a big success and very well attended.

“The tearoom in particular and the home-baking were particularly popular with visitors!”

All the money raised will go towards church funds.
