Music, singing and laughter rang out across Rouken Glen Park as Cosgrove Care held its Family and Community Day.

Taking place at the Young Enterprise Scotland Academy, the event saw youngsters enjoying face painting, arts and crafts, as well as trying their hand at gardening.

Musical acts provided the soundtrack to the day’s events, with some of the children showing off their best moves on stage.

Those who went along were also able to enjoy a cuppa and the chance to tuck into a selection of home-baked treats.

Alongside the various activities to keep all the family entertained, the charity also provided information about the work it does to support people with autism.

The event was generously supported by the Short Breaks Fund, which provides grants to third sector organisations that support unpaid carers to take a break from their caring roles.

Pauline Boyce, head of strategic development for the charity, said: “For us the day was as much about having fun as it was about raising awareness of our services and to give those looking after the children a bit of a break.

“These family days allow the children to enjoy themselves in a supportive and safe environment, giving their carers some time off.”

The event raised more than £100, which will go towards planning further services for children with autism.
