Tommy rocks on and on

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

One of the long­est sup­port­ers of St An­drew’s Hospice is Tommy An­der­son who has de­voted 30 years to fundrais­ing and vowed to back the Cap­i­tal £9 mil­lion Ap­peal.

30 years ago for the open­ing of St An­drew’s Hospice Tommy An­der­son started rais­ing funds for the Hospice and raised an amaz­ing £1500.

Tommy is a leg­end in the Air­drie Work­men’s as it is af­fec­tion­ately known.

He has run many nights for char­ity over the years and is a ded­i­cated mem­ber of the hospice Fundrais­ing team.

To cel­e­brate St An­drew’s Hospice 30th An­niver­sary So­cial Con­venor, Tommy of Air­drie Work­ing Men’s Club was de­lighted to present St An­drew’s Hospice Cap­i­tal Ap­peal with a fab­u­lous do­na­tion of £3600.

Tommy or­gan­ised an Easter Sun­day event with the sup­port of the com­mit­tee and friends from the club host­ing a raf­fle.

The night was a sell out with en­ter­tain­ment pro­vided by the Jer­sey Tones. Tommy, him­self, made a very gen­er­ous con­tri­bu­tion to the over­all amount.

The funds raised from the night were in mem­ory of Tommy’s late fa­ther Wil­liam An­der­son.

Karen McFadyen Di­rec­tor of the Cap­i­tal Ap­peal Team at the Hospice, said: “We are so grate­ful to Tommy and Air­drie Work­ing Men’s Club for or­gan­is­ing such a suc­cess­ful event”.

“The money raised from this event will go to­wards our £9mil­lion re­fur­bish­ment pro­gramme due for com­ple­tion in 2019.”
