Provost flies high for charity
Renfrewshire’s Provost Anne Hall charity drive took off in style at Paisley’s international airport.
Provost Hall earned a day’s wages at Glasgow Airport to raise money for a charitable cause close to her heart.
The company will also donate £500 to the Provost’s charity scheme.
The money raised will be shared equally among the four charities – Renfrewshire Carers’ Centre, RAMH (Recovery Across Mental Health) and two hospices – Accord and St Vincent’s – chosen by Provost Hall to feature in a special charity giving scheme during her term as Provost.
Last year, Provost Hall launched the charity giving scheme with an abseil from the roof of Renfrewshire Council’s HQ in Paisley. The event raised almost £5,000.
Since then, Provost Hall has worked for her charities at the Piazza shopping centre, Paisley in December, the Phoenix car dealership, Paisley in February and local leather plant Bridge of Weir Leather in April.
At the main check-in hall, Provost Hall worked alongside customer information assistants, taxi marshals, passenger transport assistants and airport ambassadors helping passengers on their journeys.
Provost Hall said, “I really enjoyed my day working with staff at Glasgow Airport across a variety of roles. They provide a much needed service in a very busy environment.
“Glasgow Airport is such a vibrant place and it’s great to see the dedication and enthusiasm from staff engaging with passengers who are going to or coming from a wide variety of places.
“People will be able to support the four charities by making a donation to my charity fund. Details of how to donate are available atwww.renfrewshire.gov.uk/
Ronald Leitch, Head of Security and Terminal Operations at Glasgow Airport, said, “As a big employer in the area we are always keen to give something back to the local community. We already support a variety of local groups and charities through our FlightPath Fund and are pleased to support Provost Hall by donating £500 to her chosen charities.
“To ensure our passengers have a great experience throughout the airport we are dedicated to providing excellent customer service with care, pride and passion. Our people are key to delivering this and we actively support, train and develop our staff, many of whom will stay with us throughout their careers.”
