Match of the day! Cumbernauld duo raise thousands for Cancer Research UK


HOW would you react to being told you or a family member had cancer? Would you worry about the future – your family and friends? Would you isolate yourself? Would you travel the world? Or would you dedicate your time to fundraising? Well, for two Cumbernauld brothers, the latter was the only option.

22-year-old Greenfaulds resident Dale McNeil was given the earth shattering news that he had cancer in early December, last year. Waiting until Boxing Day to give his close friends and family the news that he had been diagnosed and that his treatment would start soon, Dale and his brother, Ross, devised a plan to raise money for a well-known cancer support charity.

Dale, a lifeguard at the Time Capsule in Coatbridge turned to his brother, 26-year-old Ross McNeil, to help organise a special fundraiser for Cancer Research UK, after announcing the unfortunate news to his family, after Christmas. What the duo devised was a special football match, in aid of Cancer Research UK.

Together, they worked out the details of the match; and, after some planning decided that a match between Ross’s Cumbernauld Athletic Football Club and a few friends of Dale would be the best option.

With the bare bones agreed, the brothers elected for January 25th as their chosen date – and, with the support of another of the team’s managers, a number of star line-ups were called in.

Alan Rough, Dougie Bell, Ronnie Yule, Brian Martin, Jim Chapman, Gordon Parks, Peter Martin and Tommy Sheridan were among the ex-professional star line-up who were called up to make the day even more of a success.

With the arrangements following into place, Ross – a Financial Administrator, from Glasgow – set up a Facebook event to raise to awareness of the event, as well as a special JustGiving fundraising page.

By the time of the match – which kicked off at 11am on 25 January – the Facebook event had some 600 invited guests, while the JustGiving fundraising page had taken in over £1,200 worth of donations – well over the £500 set by Ross initially.

Cumbernauld mum’s service dog fundraising drive

ONE Cumbernauld mother has issued an appeal to potentially generous local residents, asking them to give whatever they can to give her young autistic son a service dog.

Pauline Skinner-McDade (34) works as a theatre nurse at Glasgow Royal Infirmary. However, when she gets home she’s a mother to three children – Scott, Zoe and Kyle.

A resident of the Condorrat area of Cumbernauld, Pauline and her 35-year-old husband have spoken  to Cumbernauld Media about their fundraising drive to raise £5,000 for a specially trained autism service dog.

“My husband James and I spoke about the possibility of getting a dog for the children previously, however ours is a very busy household and up until last summer both of us worked full time, which would have meant any dog we adopted would be spending a great proportion of the day alone which would not be fair to the dog,” Pauline explained to Cumbernauld Media’s Scott Campbell. 

She added: “Our situation changed in the summer when James gave up working full time to be there for our children – 6-year-old Scott, 5-year-old Zoe 5 and Kyle (4), in February.  

“We made this decision after Kyle’s behaviour started to become more challenging, meaning that it became apparent that one of us would have to be at home full time, and James’s employer was able to allow him to drop his hours to one day a week, while my employer guaranteed me one day off meaning that one of us are in the house seven days a week.”

Application for Westway store development approved
 

CUMBERNAULD'S Westway Retail Park could soon boast a brand new supermarket after North Lanarkshire Council approved a change of use application that will see two of the units in the Retail Park amalgamated.

 

Owners of Westway Retail Park, Cumbernauld Retail Park Ltd Partnership, submitted a planning application to North Lanarkshire Council last month; an application - which now granted - will see the empty 5b and 6 units at the Park amalgamated into one premises, before being fitted out to become a store.



A target determination date of February 2, 2015 was set against the application, but it only took until last Wednesday (28 January) for a final decision to be made and issued to Savills Planning, who compiled the planning application and submitted it to North Lanarkshire Council on behalf of the retail park’s owners.


 

As we have reported on previous occasions, Aldi has been looking for potential premises in Cumbernauld for some time, with their preferred location at the former ice rink, on St. Mungo’s Road not being big enough to meet their needs, meaning hopes were thwarted that the retailer might come to the town.
