Wishaw Press - - FRONT PAGE -

St Andrew’s Hos­pice are look­ing for mem­bers of the com­mu­nity to cel­e­brate St Andrew’s Day in style – all the while rais­ing funds to re­fur­bish La­nark­shire’s spe­cial­ist pal­lia­tive care hos­pice.

Maria Leonard, Cap­i­tal Ap­peal Cor­po­rate Fundraiser said: “We are look­ing for busi­nesses, in­di­vid­u­als and fam­i­lies to ‘do some­thing Scot­tish’ in aid of our Cap­i­tal Ap­peal.

“You could hold a ceilidh, a Burns sup­per, a St Andrew’s Day Din­ner, sell tablet or short­bread, hold a ‘Dress Scot­tish Day’ at work – the op­tions are end­less!

“Our St Andrew’s cam­paign cul­mi­nates on St Andrew’s Day, Novem­ber 30, but we have fundrais­ers go­ing on be­fore and af­ter this date.”

Or­gan­i­sa­tions tak­ing part in­clude Bar­clays Bank Glas­gow who have or­gan­ised a day of Scot­tish ac­tiv­i­ties on De­cem­ber 1, NL Leisure are host­ing 24 classes in 24 hours at The Tryst, Cum­ber­nauld on Novem­ber 30 and last week, Our Lady’s Mu­si­cal So­ci­ety held a bucket col­lec­tion at their Fid­dler on the Roof show at Mother­well Con­cert Hall to raise funds for the Hos­pice re­fur­bish­ment.

Maria added: “We also have ‘Strike it Scot­tish’ Foot­ball Cards which are an easy way of rais­ing funds for our Cap­i­tal Ap­peal at your work, or within your friends and fam­ily.

“If you are en­ter­ing a team to our Fes­tive Fives foot­ball tour­na­ment, why not re­quest a card for you and your team mates to raise your en­try fee?”

If you like to take part or to re­quest a foot­ball card, please con­tact the Cap­i­tal Ap­peal team on 01236 772048.
