Official Opening on Moira’s Anniversary


We were delighted to welcome Clare Haughey MSP, Minister for Children & Young People, to the official opening of our extended premises on 23rd February. Ms Haughey was joined by Clare Higgins, a local schoolgirl who has held many successful Bake Sales to raise funds for MAF.

The event took place on a particularly important date, the 65th anniversary of Moira Anderson’s disappearance. We were delighted that the Minister could join us to both celebrate our growth and expansion, and also remember Moira on this occasion.

MAF’s volunteers also organised a small memorial service, held in Dunbeth Park, Coatbridge to lay flowers and commemorate Moira.
