Ladies’ lunch brings hospice lit­tle closer

Rutherglen Reformer - - Memory Lane - Dou­glas Dickie

Ladies from around Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang got to­gether to en­joy a lunch date that raised money for a hospice ap­peal.

Tesco Burn­side or­gan­ises a com­mu­nity char­ity lunch at Ciao Bella on Stonelaw Road.

The event helped the su­per­mar­ket in its­big push to raise money for the The Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice Brick By Brick Ap­peal.

This ap­peal is to raise the £21 mil­lion needed to build a new hospice in Bel­la­hous­ton Park next year. £19.5m has al­ready been raised as the char­ity nears its tar­get.

The Burn­side event was sup­ported by a num­ber of res­i­dents and busi­nesses, who helped raise £600 to­ward the fi­nal tar­get.

Karen Jarvie, com­mu­nity cham­pion at Tesco Burn­side, said: “Our ladies’ lunch was a huge suc­cess, where we raised £600 in just a few hours and had a lovely af­ter­noon at the same time.”

She thanked the busi­ness that sup­ported the lunch and the peo­ple who gave cash do­na­tions.

“Our com­mu­nity truly came to­gether for a greater cause,” she said.
