Artizan volunteers to support animals with Easter coffee morning

A Dumbarton shopping centre is gearing up to get people ready for Easter this week as a charity coffee morning returns to the town for free crafting, refreshments, free Easter eggs and fundraising for a local animal charity.


Volunteers at Artizan Shopping Centre’s Community Hub are set to support Scotland’s Society Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) on Friday, 31 March with Easter-themed crafts for parents and their children as well as craft stalls, art exhibitions and refreshments between 10am and 2pm.


Founded in 1839, Scotland’s animal welfare charity, SPCA, rescues animals in danger, investigates abuse, prevents cruelty and finds pets new homes. The charity has 10 rehoming centres across Scotland, one of which is local to Artizan Shopping Centre.


Morven Keady, Volunteer at Artizan’s Community Hub, said she is delighted to be hosting an Easter-themed coffee morning in aid of the SPCA. “At the beginning of March, we officially launched the start of our monthly, charity coffee mornings and it was a huge success,” she said. “Previously, we showed our support for the Children’s Hospice Association Scotland (CHAS), so we thought this was the perfect opportunity to choose a different organisation to fundraise for each month.


“With Milton Animal Centre just down the road, many families that come to the centre have rehomed a pet from there, so it is going to be great for them to know where their fundraising efforts will be donated,” Morven added.


“Throughout the morning, visitors will be able to enjoy free refreshments, which are specially made by the volunteers in the Community Hub as well as Easter-themed crafts for the local children,” she said. “Plus, we will be giving the little ones free Easter eggs to take home.


“We hope everyone has a brilliant time at Artizan’s coffee morning on Friday and we look forward to seeing everyone enjoying the Community Hub stalls and the free craft sessions.”
