A NIGHT out can often leave you paralytic or leaning over the toilet, the morning after. However, Cumbernauld’s weary eyed revellers have had a whole month’s support from a new Facebook campaign, aimed at helping people to fight their hangovers. 

The ‘Cumbernauld and Kilsyth Hangover Service’ has been live on Facebook for just over one month, and is aimed at delivering those essentials to residents suffering from the inevitable morning after the night before.

Launched on June 23rd, the group’s official Facebook description says that the “Cumbernauld/Kilsyth Hangover service is here to help you way the ‘auld hangover. We will deliver whatever cure works for you; McDonalds Burger King, rolls in sausage, juice, munchies etc., and even paracetamol”. 

Joining Facebook at 2.32pm on June 23rd, 2013, the page was set up by Cumbernauld resident Elaine McCluskey, who told her fans early on in the page’s existence that she was just a “local girl”, who was hoping to “…set up a company” which offered to help deliver goods and services for local residents and businesses, adding: “I hope this is the start of providing a much needed service locally.”

Those hoping to use the service can phone the campaign’s delivery hotlines – with different numbers serving each area of Cumbernauld and Kilsyth – between 9am and 4pm, with deliveries having a £4/5 charge attached to them. 

There has been no indication of how well the service has been used since it launched. However, the group’s Facebook page is already on its way to 2,000 fans – with some of the page’s more vocal users welcoming the service immensely. 

Comments posted on the page include: “is this actual real ? no wayyyyyyyy!! this is amazin!”, “Lmao what a totally genius idea..... x”, quality!;)”, “ya dancer!!..where have u been all my life......hope it goes well.....i'll deffo use ur service.. xx”, Have sAid this service has been needed for years.........good luck”, and, “Honestly this has to b the best emergency service. 10 out of 10 to whoever founded this!!!!!!:-D:-D:-D”.
