Youth charity’s fun day with free food, sports and gambling addiction advice



One of Scotland’s leading youth charities is hosting a community fun day with free food and family sports.

More importantly, organisers will also be offering specialist gambling addiction advice to anyone who turns up for the fun-packed afternoon.

Edinburgh-based organisation Fast Forward is running the event alongside some of the best rounders players in the UK.

They hope that as many youngsters and families from the Drumchapel community will attend the event at the Preston Lodge Rugby Club.

Anyone coming along will get a free meal provided by M&M’s Munchies and day out in the sun. The bar will also be open at the rugby club.

It will be an amazing opportunity for local families to get together to enjoy a fun game of rounders.

There will also be a chance for residents to chat to the staff about gambling addiction and a number of workshops for people to discover more about the issue.
