SPAR Rosevale, owned and operated by CJ Lang and Son Limited has recently donated a generous £1000 to G&D Blood Bikes.

The money was raised through the sale of single use carrier bags, which since October 2014 cost customers 5p per bag.

Dumfries & Galloway Blood Bikes is a charitable organisation set up by local volunteers to deliver essential blood and urgent medical supplies, in and out of hours, between hospitals and healthcare sites in South West Scotland and sometimes beyond.

David Hook, from D&G Blood Bikes, said: “We are very grateful to SPAR for this donation. The £1000 will be used to ensure Lady Devorgilla our new Yamaha provided by Russel Roof Tiles stays on the road”.

Russel Morrison, Area Manager for SPAR Scotland, said: “We are delighted to have been given the opportunity to support such an important cause”.
