Lunch date to raise hos­pice funds

Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser - - Hoops’ Guests -

Lord lieu­tenant Lady Su­san Haughey and North La­nark­shire provost Jean Jones are among the lat­est vis­i­tors to the ren­o­vated St An­drew’s Hos­pice.

They saw the ren­o­vated premises – where pa­tients will re­turn to­day af­ter 15 months of con­struc­tion – as they pro­moted a“lasses’lunch”.

It takes place at the Alona Ho­tel in Strath­clyde Park on April 15, and in­cludes a sparkling re­cep­tion, lunch, games, danc­ing and shop­ping; with pro­ceeds be­ing split be­tween St An­drew’s and Strath­car­ron hospices.

Nearly £6 mil­lion of the re­quired £9m has been raised to date – and cap­i­tal ap­peal chair Gibby Cox said: “The ap­peal isn’t fin­ished – there’s still a lot of money to find.”

The hos­pice is now run­ning a Home­com­ing cam­paign – text ROOM18 £5 to 70070 to do­nate.

Tick­ets for the“lasses’lunch”cost £35; email Linda Gib­son on gib­sonl@ north­lan.gov.uk to book.
