Angel star turns monster for East End kids
Angels’ Share star, Paul Brannigan, became Frankenstein’s monster for the night for kids in the East End of Glasgow.
It was part of a week of activities run by PEEK which included making masks and candle holders, a scary trip to Edinburgh Dungeon and cycling in Aberfoyle as well as a Hallowe’en party.
More than 200 people attended the Hallowe’en Ghost Walk and Monsters Ball at Reidvale Neighbourhood Centre last weekend.
Paul, who played Robbie in Ken Loach’s Scottish film The Angels’ Share, helped out and his young son also joined in, dressed as batman.
Michaela Munro, from PEEK, said: “It was a huge success, it was amazing to see the children get involved. The evening was terrifyingly terrific. We hope everyone had a spectacular evening.
“We would like to thank everyone who came and especially all those who helped.”
