A Royal Visit
It was a very special day for brave young Lauren Cosgrove when she got to meet HRH Princess Anne when she visited to perform the opening ceremony at the Barrhead Foundry. The courageous schoolgirl who battles her illness every day has raised thousands of pounds to help others and was voted Citizen of the Year so it was fitting she got to see and present the Princess with a bouquet of flowers and a special ‘Lauren’s Lifelines’ charity goody bag. There was a buzz of excitement and I was delighted to attend the opening and meet with local folk who are already making good use of the brand new facilities, including a first-class library and enhanced sports facilities.
