Crowd­fund­ing plan to help busi­nesses

Hamilton Advertiser - - NEWS - Shirley Bar­tynek

More than £1000 has been raised to help two Hamil­ton busi­nesses hit by a huge fire last week.

The Hamil­ton com­mu­nity ral­lied last week and set up a Just Giv­ing page to raise cash for the two firms, Sponge ‘n’ Hoses car wash and The Tyre Fac­tory, who were af­fected by the blaze.

The Just Giv­ing page reads: “As a com­mu­nity, we need your help in en­sur­ing that the hard work­ing women and men of Sponge ‘n’ Hoses car wash and the Tyre Fac­tory don’t need to worry about where and when their next pay cheque is com­ing from un­til ev­ery­one can get back on their feet.

“Th­ese are our friends and fam­ily mem­bers, they have bills to pay and mouths to feed so we want to come to­gether as a com­mu­nity and help one of Hamil­ton’s most loved lo­cal busi­nesses.

“Please share and help us en­sure our friends and fam­i­lies can live with­out hav­ing to worry about their place of work, this fund­ing is for the peo­ple af­fected by the fire that has de­stroyed their work­places so please help as much as you can.

“Ev­ery penny raised will go to th­ese amaz­ing peo­ple.”
