Eddlewood Bowling Club have been long standing supporters of Kilbryde Hospice, and this year is no different. This summer the club raised a fantastic £3842 from their annual charity bowling match.
President John Stubbs, Immediate Past President Harry Coyle and Secretary Charlie Miller were delighted to be invited up to the hospice on Friday 19 September to hand their cheque to some of the Kilbryde Hospice board of directors.
Nicola Gunn, Fundraising Manager at Kilbryde Hospice said “We are so grateful to the members of Eddlewood Bowling Club who have done so much over the years to raise funds to help us build Kilbryde Hospice. Now that the construction is complete we were very happy to be able to show some of the members of the club around the new hospice and thank them for their many years of loyal support.”
Kilbryde Hospice has been operating a drop in centre since 2008 from the Red Deer Centre in East Kilbride. In the coming months this service will be transferred over to the new hospice facility.
The new hospice also houses a 12 bedroom in-patient unit which will offer specialist palliative care to patients with life limiting illnesses in and around South Lanarkshire.
Now that the hospice has been built, Kilbryde Hospice need your support more than ever to raise the money needed to become a fully operational facility for the people of South Lanarkshire.
