Celine Mall makes children laugh, as Tickles the Clown. Every week for the past eight years she has been going to the Royal Hospital for Children in Glasgow to entertain the children. She brightens up the days of everyone she sees. And she’s also been to Lapland as part of a trip organised by the Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity and When You Wish Upon a Star Scotland.
Celine was nominated by her daughter Luici Mitchell.
Luici said: “She goes above and beyond to make the children smile. She’s a credit to our family”.
Celine said: “We had an absolutely fantastic time and have already decided to get together and go as a family next year. It was a wonderful start to the Christmas season, done with the incredible style that only Boclair can offer. Little Alex was every inch the star and it was a joy to meet her and her family”.
Boclair House Hotel opened in 2016. This is the second year running they have held this event, which is aimed at bringing the local community together.
Events were held during the day, which included lunch in the ballroom and also in Annabel’s Restaurant. Santa made an appearance and Tickles the Clown became a fun Christmas Elf. Bearsden Choir entertained the crowds with Christmas carols from the bandstand, and hot food and drinks were served outside.
The team behind Boclair House Hotel had also been busy making homemade cookies and sweet treats, and an outside stall manned by receptionist Katrine Codona made a total of £215. All sale proceeds were donated to The Saturday Café Charity. This Glasgow-based charity’s main purpose is to provide short break recreation activities which make a positive impact on children and young people living with a disability, as well as safeguarding their rights and providing support for their families.
Andrew McIvor, General Manager, Boclair House Hotel said, “We’re now officially ready for Christmas. Our light switch on was a great success. It was an honour to host and welcome our local heroes, and I was delighted to see so many people come together and have a great time.”
