ELAINE BACKS AP­PEAL

Rutherglen Reformer - - St. Andrew's Hospice 80th Anniversary -

Elaine Smith praises the work of the Hospice of which she is an am­bas­sador and is back­ing the Cap­i­tal Fund Ap­peal.

The Scot­tish Labour can­di­date said: “St An­drew’s Hospice is one of the most recog­nised and cher­ished in­sti­tu­tions in La­nark­shire.

“For 30 years many fam­i­lies, in­clud­ing my own, have had ex­pe­ri­ence of deal­ing with the Hospice and the spe­cial­ist care it pro­vides for loved ones.

“I am proud to be an Am­bas­sador for the Hospice, and, in Septem­ber 2015, I lodged a mo­tion in the Scot­tish Par­lia­ment high­light­ing the ‘Cap­i­tal Ap­peal Scheme’ which aims to raise £9 mil­lion for mod­i­fi­ca­tions to the fa­cil­i­ties.

“I will con­tinue to sup­port the Hospice for the out­stand­ing, car­ing and ex­cep­tional as­sis­tance it pro­vides to many fam­i­lies across La­nark­shire.

“I also com­mend all of those who run events and col­lect funds for St An­drew’s Hospice to al­low the day to day func­tion­ing of this ex­cel­lent fa­cil­ity to con­tinue.”
