Whyte & Barrie Director, Alan Crooks, who manages their East Kilbride office, said, “To mark our 70th Anniversary year, we decided to take the opportunity of raising money for a local charity and had no hesitation in choosing Kilbryde Hospice. The firm was founded in 1947 the same year East Kilbride was designated Scotland’s first new town, so it seems fitting we have supported the Hospice since its inception and are delighted to have played a small part in helping bring this amazing vision to reality. The people of South Lanarkshire deserve to have palliative care available locally”
