Emma Gillies who is organising the event, is Branch Manager of Barnardo’s Scotland Stewartfield store. She says: “I’d like to thank everyone who is supporting our first Christmas Fair. It’s a great opportunity to raise awareness of local businesses, tell people about opportunities to volunteer at Barnardo’s Scotland store and raise funds for our vital work helping vulnerable families, children and young people. We hope to see you there!”

Stewartfield Christmas Fair will take place on Saturday 16th November, from 12pm to 5pm, at Stewartfield Community Centre, 3 MacNeish Way, East Kilbride, Glasgow G74 4TT.
