A DRUMCHAPEL day care centre has raised vital funds to help cover the costs of its summer services.

Antonine Court aims to provide the highest level of care and support to educate and enable adults with varying abilities and their families to reach their full potential within their own goals and aspirations.

The centre held a social night at their premises on Dunkenny Road last weekend.

Clydebank Post: And Jane Doran, assistant manager at Antonine Court, opened up on the success of the event.

She said: "The night went really well. We had plenty of donations from the community and local businesses.

"We raised roughly £1800 which was well above our target and the most we have ever taken at one event.

Clydebank Post: "Families and friends of the service users helped massively and we were delighted to raise such a phenomenal amount of money."

Antonine Court has been operating in the Drumchapel community for over 30 years.

The centre provides vital rest bite for families who use the service.

Clydebank Post: And Jane expressed her delight at getting the opportunity to see everyone come together for the event.

"The night was amazing and it was really busy," she continued.

"Over 100 people attended the fundraiser. We had karaoke and a raffle.

Clydebank Post: "A lot of our service users were also in attendance which was great to see.

"They were up singing and taking part. The families in attendance were really appreciative of all our efforts and that was amazing to see.

"It was great to see everyone."

Clydebank Post: The staff at the Antonine offer a variety of different activities and fundraising events such as the social night, to keep the service running.

The centre operates five days a week, with roughly 28 people using the service full-time.

Clydebank Post: And Jane explained how the funds raised at the social night will aid the organisation over the summer.

Clydebank Post: "It will help cover the costs of some arts and crafts as well as summer outings," she added.

"We paid for the service users to go to Blair Drummond Safari Park last week, which members of staff raised money for to cover those costs.

"The staff and I are buzzing at the amount of money raised.

Clydebank Post: "We always try to apply for as much funding as is available but there is always a limited pot.

"So individual fundraisers are an important lifeline for us."
