Sandy Stoddart Glasgow Necropolis Tour
St Vincent’s Hospice Ambassador Sandy Stoddart, Sculptor in Ordinary to Her Majesty the Queen, held an exclusive walking tour of the Glasgow Necropolis with donations being taken in aid of the hospice.
Over 50 people turned up to be guided through this fascinating cemetery, giving unique historical insights into the monuments designed by major architects and sculptors of the time. Those included Alexander ‘Greek’ Thomson, Charles Rennie Macintosh and JT Rochead, created for the prominent and wealthy entrepreneurs of the ‘Second City of the Empire’.
The weather stayed dry for the tour, as everyone enjoyed listening to this very exclusive look at part of Glasgow’s history. There was such a high demand over the weekend for people to attend the tour that Sandy very kindly agreed to hold it all over again on the Sunday.
Thanks to the generosity of all that attended the tour the fantastic sum of £650 was raised for the hospice. A special thanks to Sandy for giving his time and expertise in hosting this event for the hospice.
For all those that missed out on this walking tour Sandy will be holding an exclusive walking tour of Paisley on Saturday 8th September. Tickets are just £10 and places are limited to a maximum of 30 people.
