Renfrewshire South MSP Tom Arthur held a festive coffee morning in his Johnstone constituency office on Friday afternoon (06 December), with visitors helping money for local charity St. Vincent’s Hospice. Mr Arthur also presented Carol-Anne Lamont, Fundraising Manager at the Hospice, with a cheque for £100 he had previously raised.
St. Vincent’s is a specialist provider of care for people and families in Renfrewshire and beyond who are affected by life-limiting conditions. The sum will help the Hospice continue providing the best possible specialist palliative care and support across the community.
Each year, the Hospice relies on voluntary donations and fundraising efforts for more than half of their funds to make this possible.
Organiser Tom Arthur MSP said:
“It was great to get so many people from the local area together in aid of such an important cause.
“I’d like to thank everyone who came along to offer kind donations and delicious home baking, and my staff for all of their hard work in arranging a great event.
“I’m very grateful to everyone who supported us, everything raised will go towards supporting the Hospice’s vital work.”
