Thou­sands of pounds was raised for one of Pais­ley’s favourite char­i­ties at its Christ­mas fair.

Ac­cord Hospice held the an­nual event at Pais­ley Town Hall, and it saw hun­dreds of peo­ple go over the door to sup­port the or­gan­i­sa­tion and pick up a fes­tive bar­gain or two.

There was some­thing for ev­ery­one at the dozens of stalls that sold ev­ery­thing from crafts to de­li­cious home bak­ing.

Ken Mathie, head of in­come gen­er­a­tion at Ac­cord, said: “We had a won­der­ful day, with just over £13,000 be­ing raised at our fair.

“We are ab­so­lutely de­lighted and would like to thank ev­ery­one who took the trou­ble to come along and sup­port us.

“We prob­a­bly had 2,000 peo­ple through the front door.”

The money raised at the event will go to­wards Ac­cord’s work at its Hawk­head Road base and in peo­ple’s own homes.

It looks af­ter se­ri­ously ill peo­ple of all ages, and also car­ries out work to help fam­i­lies cope.
