A Glasgow school is among the three local charities to receive a combined donation of £2,400 from a popular car retailer in the city.

Through the Arnold Clark Change for Charity scheme, East Park School in Maryhill, Chris's House in Wishaw, and Turner Syndrome Support Society in Clydebank received £800 each.

The scheme allows employees to donate the change from their paychecks to a nominated local charity.

Lynne McBurney, group people director at Arnold Clark, said: "Our employees are at the heart of everything we do and it’s great to help support them to give back to their local community.

"Choosing local charities that our employees have suggested we support via the Change for Charity initiative has not only allowed us to donate to smaller organisations but, alongside our Community Fund, has helped us to build fantastic relationships with them going forward too.”

East Park School has been providing education and supported accommodation services to children and young people with additional support needs, including autism, since 1874.

Chris's House provides help, response and intervention surrounding suicide.

A spokesperson for Chris's House said: "On behalf of Chris’s House, we want to extend our deepest gratitude for the donation that you made to the charity.

"Every donation we receive helps us to provide vital services to people in crisis and those who have been affected by suicide.

"Your donation will have a significant impact on changing lives."

The Turner Syndrome Support Society is a UK-wide charity dedicated to addressing the needs of girls and women with Turner Syndrome.
