Mears Group, who work in partnership with North Lanarkshire Council, have raised £11,500 at this year’s Mears Charity Golf Day held at Dundonald Links for St Andrew’s Hospice.

The Airdrie charity, founded in 1986 by the Sisters of Charity, provides specialist care for thousands of Lanarkshire patients with life-limiting illnesses.

The money raised from this event will help to provide specialist palliative care to patients and their families from communities across both North and South Lanarkshire.

Louise O’Donnell, Deputy Head of Fundraising at St Andrew’s Hospice, said:

“We are delighted to be working in partnership with Mears, who as well as organising their golf day to raise funds for patient care at the Hospice, has continued to help us by being one of our key supporters over the years.

“The dedication and commitment from everyone at Mears have been nothing short of sensational and we are so grateful that they have chosen St Andrew’s Hospice to benefit from all of the money raised at the Golf Day.

Without the support of businesses like Mears, we wouldn’t be able to continue to provide the care and support that really makes a difference to the lives of our patients and their loved ones in Lanarkshire.

“We would like to extend our thanks again for everything Mears does to support the Hospice and to everyone who very generously supported their golf event.”

Barry Duncan, Managing Director at Mears said:

“We are happy to be able to continue supporting St Andrew’s Hospice by organising the golf day. The Hospice plays an important role in caring for the people in Lanarkshire and Mears are proud to be involved.

“Well done to everyone for supporting this fantastic cause.”
