Joe’s coffee morning raises funds for charity
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.
