A group of Cambuslang singers have been thanked for their latest charity gesture.
The ladies in the Cambus Singers recently held their annual cheese, wine and song concert, which was this year raising funds for the Kilbryde Hospice, based at Hairmyres Hospital in East Kilbride.
A group from the choir visited the hospice last week, when they presented them with a cheque for £2000.
Chloe Martin, from the Kilbryde Hospice’s community and events fundraising team, said: “We are so grateful to the members of the Cambus Singers who have raised a fantastic amount through their cheese and wine concert night.
“We were very happy to be able to show some of the members around the new hospice and thank them for their support.”
The choir, which has been running for the past 27 years, regularly sing at concerts and hold their own events, which has seen them raise money for a variety of good causes in the past, including the Red Cross and the Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice, and they have raised tens of thousands of pounds for good causes in the process.
Choir mistress Margaret Pringle said:”We must have raised over £60,000 over the years. We’re not a big choir, but we’ve managed to do not too badly.
“We have a few more events lined up for the next year too.”
Meanwhile, Margaret revealed that the choir will be entering its final year when the new session resumes after the summer holidays.
She said: “This will be our last year - I’ve thought maybe the time was right for a wee while, and I’ll be turning 79 so I just feel it’s time to stop.
“I know quite a few of the ladies were thinking about finishing up as well, and there’s nobody who will take over, so it seems like the right time.
“The ladies have been very loyal over the years, and we can look forward to our last year together.”
