Smith & Valentine and McCormick & Nicholson have raised over £2,000 from their 2019 Willing to Help campaign. This year’s chosen charity is St John Scotland whose West Galloway team run a patient transport service to enable local cancer patients to access treatment in the central belt. The money raised will be put towards the purchase of a new vehicle to allow the team to help more patients in the future.
Alison Burns, Chair of St John Scotland’s West Galloway Committee, said: “We’re incredibly grateful to the people of Stranraer who made donations through the scheme. We have a lot of local support and people really appreciate the work we do, particularly the Patient Transport service. We would like to thank everyone who made a contribution.”
“Willing to help” is a scheme where we ask clients to support a different local charity each year instead of paying our usual fee for a Will. For more information on the scheme, please contact us.
