CJ Lang and Son Limited, owners and operators of SPAR Scotland donated a generous cheque for £5,000 to Children’s Cystic Fibrosis Fund.

The money was raised through the sale of single use carrier bags, which costs customers 5p per bag, and was collected and donated to a local charity nominated by the 13 Stores in the Glasgow area.
Cystic Fibrosis Fund works towards a brighter future for everyone with cystic fibrosis by funding cutting – edge research, driving up standards of care and supporting people with the condition and their loved ones every step of the way.

Peter Anderson, Paediatric CF Physio at Greater Glasgow and Clyde Health Board, said: “Please extend my thanks to SPAR Scotland staff and customers for this generous donation. Children with cystic fibrosis often require spending regular and extended periods of time in hospital and this donation will be put to extremely good use and help fund a variety of equipment that will improve the range of therapies we are able to offer during hospital stays”

David Cunningham, Area manager for SPAR Scotland said: “We are delighted to have been given the opportunity to support such a worthwhile local cause”.
