XSite Braehead has raised a total of £1,287 following a special day of family fun in partnership with children’s charity One Great Day.

Families were encouraged to pay a visit to XSite Braehead to enjoy a range of entertaining activities to delight little ones, create amazing family memories and raise money for a worthy cause.

Kids loved getting their face painted as their favourite animal, sampling the delights of the sweet-as-sugar candy cart, and visiting a professional balloon artist who brought a variety of balloon sculptures and creatures to life.

Customers were asked to make a small contribution to take part in the individual activities in aid of One Great Day, with funds raised going towards Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity and Great Ormond Street Hospital.

Rosalind Gibson, Marketing Manager at XSite Braehead, said: “We’re proud to be donating the proceeds of our One Great Day event to these amazing charities which improve the lives of so many children in our communities.

“I’d like to give a special thanks to the many generous families who came along and celebrated with us, helping us to raise money for this great cause. It was a joy to see the painted faces, incredible balloon art and lots of smiles!”

One Great Day is a UK wide annual charity fundraising day, which aims to inspire, engage and empower communities to make a difference by getting involved in a series of local fundraising events held throughout the country. Since it was established in 2014, One Great Day has raised over £750,000 for more than 220 different children’s health charities in the UK.
