Ladies’ lunch brings hospice little closer
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.
