Toy appeal

Kind-hearted Kirky shoppers are making needy children’s Christmas extra special this year.

They’ve been backing the Regent Centre’s toy appeal, which will see new toys distributed to families who need it most throughout the Kirkintilloch area this festive season.

Centre supervisor Paul Montgomery said: ‘‘The appeal has been going very well. THe area we have set aside is about two thirds full now, but there is still time for people to come along and donate.’’
