The five-year-old from Paisley was at the mall when it played host to Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity for a Harry Potter Weekend of fun-filled activities including a treasure hunt and some magical arts and crafts.
Kids also had their photograph taken in front of a green screen and thanks to some Harry Potter magic, when the pictured is emailed to them, the backdrop will make it look like they have been in Hogwarts.
The three-day event was held to raise much-needed funds for the charity’s life-changing projects and services for children in hospital and their families.
Anyone taking part was asked to make a minimum of a £1 donation for each activity to the Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity.
Braehead’s community development manager, Lydia Brown said: “We had a magical weekend of wizards and witches and everyone enjoyed becoming Harry Potter – even for just a little while.”
William McGowan, Head of Partnerships and Events, Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity said: “We are incredibly grateful to Braehead for their continued support and generosity.
“Funds raised through our Harry Potter Weekend activities will help to continue our charity-funded play and events programme, family support services and well-being support for NHS staff, giving children and their families the best possible hospital experience.”
