HUNDREDS of youngsters enjoyed fun and games at Cardwell Garden Centre.

The garden centre organised a charity barbecue garden party to raise money for the Whiteleys Retreat respite facility for children and young people with cancer and life altering illness.

One of the highlights was the special appearances of mascots from the animated children's television series PJ Masks.

Cardwell’s retail general manager Paul Carmichael said: “Everyone had a great time and the PJ Masks mascots went down a treat with the youngsters.

"As well as having some great fun, we also raised much-needed cash for Whiteleys Retreat.

"Look out for our next weekend of fun and games coming soon."

During the fun-filled weekend there was also a PJ Masks Treasure Hunt, bouncy castle, face painting, music from the Clydeside Singers, and a barbecue along with games like hook a duck, feed the clown and ball in the bucket games.

A total of £250 was raised for Whiteleys Retreat in Ayrshire.

The centre would like to thank everyone who came along and contributed.
