A Bishopbriggs grandmother is turning her passion for antiques into cash for a cause close to her heart.
Pat Gair (pictured) hopes to raise hundreds of pounds for Scots charity Cure Crohn’s Colitis (C3) from a stall and prize draw at an antiques and collection fair at Bellahouston Leisure Centre on Sunday.
Pat’s five-year-old granddaughter was diagnosed with debilitating digestive condition Crohn’s disease at the age of just two.
The charity gives 100 per cent of its funds towards research to find a cure. Scotland has one of the highest incidences of the disease in the world, with one child a week being diagnosed at Yorkhill Hospital.
Pat said: “More and more children are being affected by this dreadful disease.
“Anything to help raise awareness or to fund medical research to help find a cure, is welcome.”
The Scotfair antiques fair runs from 10am-4pm and and every penny from Pat’s treasure trove of goodies is for C3.
