Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Res­i­dents of Abbeyfield Care Home in Ruther­glen got some Christ­mas cheer thanks to a do­na­tion from a lo­cal su­per­mar­ket.

Tesco in Burn­side gave mince pies and mulled wine to the home which is lo­cated on Buchanan Drive.

Store Man­ager Mark Swan (Santa) and Com­mu­nity Cham­pion Karen Jarvie (Santa’s Elf) gave each res­i­dent a gift.

They were joined byTesco’s Group Coach Bryan Ed­wards, Man­agers Char­lotte Hughes, Cealie McKenna and Martin Bis­land who sev­ered up some mulled wine and mince pies to all.

Mark said :“Tesco’s com­mu­nity ini­tia­tive works well through­out the year in our lo­cal area, how­ever Christ­mas time gives us an ex­tra spe­cial op­por­tu­nity to use Tesco’s scale for good and in­volve more of our col­leagues, who I must say en­joyed it as much as the res­i­dents of Abbeyfield”

A spokesper­son for the care home said:“A big thanks to Tesco.”
