Anyone working with Children or Vulnerable Adults should attend one of the
following courses run by Glasgow Presbytery. The courses are very engaging and

The Kirkintilloch Herald is joining up with a Glasgow-based charity called Cure
Crohn’s Colitis which gives 100 per cent of its funds towards medical research to find
a cure for Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. The number of people in Scotland,
particularly children, being diagnosed with these two serious inflammatory bowel
diseases is rising rapidly. It’s a condition which is often overlooked.
The Herald is running a Mad Hatter’s Easter Tea Party competition in the run up
to Easter to raise funds and awareness. We are inviting local people to design/
decorate a hat, make a donation to the charity, either by cheque or through a
justgiving page and there will be a trophy for the best adult and child’s hat and
Easter egg prizes, etc.
The closing date is Wednesday 29th March before the schools stop for the Easter
holidays. The link to a charity story in this week’s paper is: http://www.
