Budding bakers at a Coatbridge opticians helped raise £245 for St Andrews Hospice, providing a welcome boost to the charity just in time for Christmas.

Specsavers Coatbridge hosted a stall with home baked goods and St Andrews Hospice merchandise in store and thanks to the generous donations and support from local residents, it raised a great sum for the hospice.

The season of goodwill

Keith Sharp, store director at Specsavers Coatbridge, said: ‘Christmas is the season of goodwill and it was great to present St Andrews Hospice with a cheque at this time.

The hospice offers a fantastic service in providing care for people living with life-limiting illnesses and their families. We are proud to show our support for the work they do.

Thank you to the store team and all our visitors for their support of our recent fundraising efforts.’
