Irvine mums had a ball raising funds for their parent and toddler group by hosting a ladies night in Girdle Toll.

The Parents and Toddler group, who meet weekly in the Lanfine Community Centre, held a fundraising ladies night for the mums this month.

This was to raise funds for the group’s upcoming Christmas party for the little ones with £500 raised on the night.

The group, run by parents Julie Beattie and Samantha Gibson, meets every Thursday in the centre.

Julie Beattie said: “We would like to keep it as affordable for families as possible, and for our local group to thrive and be recognised as a place where parents can socialise and children have a safe space to play.

“The funds we aim to raise will go towards the childrens’ upcoming Christmas Party and for new equipment, toys, craft supplies.”
