People at a Clydebank care home donned their best fancy dress outfits for a sponsored walk.

Residents and staff from Hill View Care Home put on their silliest hats and craziest wigs for a sponsored stroll along the Forth and Clyde Canal to McMonagles fish and chip boat recently in a bid to raise some money for the facility.

Employees at the much-loved chip shop kindly supplied the walkers with a piping hot bag of freshly-made chips and a hot drink to keep their energy going on the cold day.

Michael Gallagher, activities co-ordinator for the Singer Road facility, said: “It was a great day had by all. McMonagles fish and chip boat were fantastic by providing us all with chips and hot drinks that went down a treat with everyone.

“In total we raised £400 to go towards activities for residents which is outstanding and we would like to thank everyone for their kindness which is greatly appreciated.”

The money they raised will go towards fun days out and a variety of activities for the elderly residents to enjoy.

They also had their spirits lifted recently when three fluffy alpacas - Sid, Eric and Chester - paid a surprise visit to the elderly in their rooms and the garden in a mission to combat loneliness.

The staff and residents are now looking forward to their Christmas fete on December 5.
