DRUMCHAPEL Amateurs have made a cracking effort to help out a Clydebank charity.

Players and officials from the local football club’s youth teams joined with the Little Lions Academy, walking football, senior amateur side and social club at Glenhead Park in collecting Easter eggs to hand over to the Golden Friendship Club.

The charity runs groups entertaining the elderly, disabled and people with special needs and learning difficulties.

In total, 260 eggs were handed over to Golden Friendship founder Jim McLaren.

Drumchapel Amateurs 2007s secretary Adele Havelin told the Post: “I met with Jim at the Golden Friendships club in February to see how the Drum could help them.

“We got talking about him starting a new group for their friends with special needs and with Easter approaching we decided to do an egg donation.

“I put it to the club and in no time teams were handing in eggs, which built up to a huge pile in my front doorway!

“It was a tremendous effort from all the teams connected to Drumchapel Amateurs and we were delighted to help a great group who do so much for the local community.”

Jim McLaren added: “Golden Friendships would like to thank you all for your generosity in donating Easter eggs.

“It means so much to us getting support from your wonderful club.”
