KIND-HEARTED Barrhead residents are being asked to give their backing to a new club for adults with additional support needs.

The Tuesday Friendship Club will stage its first meeting at 7pm on May 23 in Barrhead's Columba Club.

And organisers are hoping to raise £500 to buy equipment.

Spokeswoman Mags Monaghan said: "Since this is a new club, we have no laptop, music, karaoke or bingo machine and are looking for people's support.

"We would be very grateful for any donations."
