Tommy rocks on and on
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.”
