Over the last year, Provost of Renfrewshire Lorraine Cameron supported St. Vincent’s Hospice as her charity of the year and has raised an astonishing £9,637.58 towards their caring services.
St. Vincent’s Hospice is a provider of specialist palliative and Hospice care for people and families all across Renfrewshire who have been affected by life limiting conditions.
Chief Executive of St. Vincent’s Hospice, Kate Lennon, said: “From charity nights, to constantly helping raise awareness, encouraging other local Councillors to take part in, or organise fundraising activities, and even getting hands on and doing a shift in one of our shops, the support we have received from Provost Lorraine Cameron has been absolutely second to none, and we cannot thank her enough.
“Not only is the total of more than £9,000 an unbelievable amount to have raised for our services, but the attention which this has helped raise towards our services and the difference that St. Vincent’s makes to so many in the community is immeasurable.
“On behalf of all of us at the Hospice, and to the countless patients, families and loved ones who have been supported in some way by these efforts, I want to say thank you to Provost Cameron, and to everyone who helped make this possible. Thank you.”
Provost Lorraine Cameron said: “It’s been an honour to support St Vincent’s Hospice over the past year. They are a local charity in the heart of the community here in Renfrewshire and I know how much the work they do means to so many people.
“I had a great day working in their shop in Paisley and a real highlight of the year was organising an 80’s themed party night to celebrate the 30 years of St Vincent’s Hospice. It was great fun getting all dressed up.
“I’d also like to say thank you to everyone who helped me support St Vincent’s – whether you bought a ticket to the 80’s night, spent money in a St Vincent’s shop or supported them in another way. Every penny makes a difference.”
