Aultmore Park Primary and Autism Unit, in Easterhouse, was given £500 by a window company to buy a present for every child, to be given out by Santa.

They hosted a special Christmas party for all 330 pupils aged between five and 11 who attend the school, which caters for children with autism spectrum disorder as well as pupils with a range of additional support needs.

Head teacher Gillian Kierans said: "I am delighted that Aultmore Park has been chosen as this month's Weatherseal Community Heroes recipient.

"The money will help us make Christmas special for pupils by providing Christmas parties, with a treat from Santa for all.

"We are extremely grateful for this generous donation."

The money was donated by home improvement ompany Weatherseal's Community Heroes Fund, which received applications from a variety of local groups and organisations including social clubs, Boys' Brigade units and libraries.

The company has already gifted thousands of pounds to projects helping the elderly and vulnerable as well as young people.

Tony Reilly, Weatherseal managing director, said: "We were bowled over by the response in Glasgow and had some fantastic applications.

"Aultmore Primary was chosen as a worthy beneficiary due to the hard work the staff and head teacher carry out on a daily basis to make the school a great place.

"Unfortunately resources are very limited and we feel it's important that additional funding is made available to such a good cause."
