Rutherglen Reformer - - Out And About -

Staff at a Cam­bus­lang fu­neral di­rec­tors opened up their doors to help raise vi­tal funds for a lo­cal char­ity.

Joseph Nel­son’s Fu­neral Di­rec­tors held a cof­fee morn­ing at their Glen Street branch in aid of Cam­bus­lang Dis­abled Fund.

Joe heard about vol­un­teers from the fund climb­ing one of Scot­land’s high­est moun­tains and rais­ing £600 along the way.

He was in­spired to do his part and put on the cof­fee morn­ing which proved to be a great suc­cess, rais­ing £500 for the group, which has been on the go for al­most 40 years.

Joe said:“I would like to thank my staff for their ef­forts in help­ing to or­gan­ise the morn­ing, it was a great suc­cess.

“I would also like to thank the many lo­cal busi­nesses that do­nated to­wards the raf­fle, with­out them it sim­ply wouldn’t be pos­si­ble.

“Most im­por­tantly, I would like to thank the mem­bers of the pub­lic who came along for a cuppa and dug deep to help this great lo­cal cause, it was great to see com­mu­nity com­ing to­gether.

“We even had a sur­prise visit from Mickey Mouse.”

Cam­bus­lang Dis­abled Fund is run by Ger­ard Jones and is a reg­is­tered char­ity in Scot­land.

The fund was es­tab­lished for the pur­pose of ben­e­fit­ing per­sons who suf­fer from a phys­i­cal or men­tal hand­i­cap in Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang.
