UPDATE:  Our Managing Director John Quinn is off to settle a score with Kilimanjaro  to raise more money for St Andrew’s Hospice.  Read more and help him fundraise here.  

Wallace Quinn has long been a supporter of the St Andrew’s Hospice in Airdrie.  For over thirty years the Hospice has been a hugely important resource for patients, families and carers across Lanarkshire.

We’ve raised money through a variety of fundraising events and this month our Managing Director John Quinn visited the Hospice to present a cheque for £3600.

The money will go towards the Hospice’s ‘Capital Appeal’ – a £9 million pound programme to reconfigure and refurbish the hospice and make it fit for the future.

Karen McFadyen, Capital Appeal Director for St Andrew’s Hospice says,

“Significant changes in how hospice care is delivered is a key factor in our major refurbishment programme and will ensure we can continue to provide safe and quality care for the next thirty years.  The equipment and facilities needed to deliver modern hospice care have considerable changed since we opened in 1986 and take up much more space.  Refurbishing the Hospice will allow us to stay in our current home and continue to care for the patients of North and South Lanarkshire and make our Hospice fit for the future. The upgraded building will enable us to increase the number of single bedded rooms than we have at present, which will allow us to ensure privacy for patients and their loved ones.”

Wallace Quinn Managing Director John Quinn says,

“Wallace Quinn has been supporting St Andrew’s Hospice with fundraising activities since we first opened for business and it an association I know will continue for many years.   The Hospice does a remarkable job of helping individuals and families when they need help the most and it is a real privilege for us to be able to assist in any way we can.”

For this latest event, Wallace Quinn hosted a golf day at Dullatar Golf Club in Cumbernauld.  We invited our suppliers, clients and friends to enter teams of four.   The winning team had a bit of a home advantage, as all of them are members at Dullator – Stuart McKie, Jim Marshall, Steven Freeburn and Jim Hamilton.  The second placed team was from one of our suppliers, Professional Office Supplies, captained by Adrian McKenna.

Well done to everybody for taking part and, as always, our deepest respect and admiration to all the staff and volunteers at St Andrew’s Hospice for their remarkable work.
