PEOPLE turned out in numbers as an Alloa community centre hosted its annual fun day at the weekend.

The Summer Fun Day at Hawkhill Community Centre was hailed a success after the event brought folks together on Saturday, July 29, afternoon.

There was plenty for young an old with a variety of activities including a bouncy castle, face painting, beat the goalie and much more.

Children had a ball exploring a Police Scotland van while people were generous in buying raffle and tombola tickets to help raise funds for the centre's youth group.

There was also plenty of food on offer with Alloa's Leona Orr, of Sugar Mum Bakes, also running a stall and bringing in more people thanks to her social media presence.

Sandra Clements, centre manager, told the Advertiser how the centre always looks to hold a summer event to help create some fun memories for families while showcasing what is on offer for the community.

She said: “It was really busy, a fantastic turnout.

“We are really lucky, the community really supports us.”

Some people visited from Cumbernauld, Falkirk and even Edinburgh, encouraged by the cake stall of Leona Orr, from Alloa, who boasts some three million likes on TikTok.

With money still being counted, around £820 has so far been raised through the event which will go to support the centre's youth group.

Sandra said: “I'm amazed – that's testament to the people who come, they are so generous, they'll spend money on the raffle tickets, tombola and everything.”

The centre manager gave a big nod of thanks to all who came along and supported the event.

She also praised staff and volunteers who were tireless in making sure the day ran smoothly.
