STONEHOUSE OLD FOLKS BAG A CHEQUE FROM SPAR SCOTLAND

Date Published:

CJ Lang and Son Limited, owners and operators of SPAR Scotland donated a generous cheque for £400 to Storehouse Old Folks Welfare Committee. The money was raised through the sale of single use carrier bags, which since October 2014 cost customers 5p per bag.

The Welfare committee holds afternoon and evening events for the elderly, including live music, dancing, talks, films and bingo. Due to generous donations the committee can now cater these events for up to 150 people.

The Stonehouse Old Folks Welfare committee is just one of many chosen charities across the country to benefit from the funds raised through SPAR carrier bag funds. Cheques will be donated to various campaigns from youth clubs, sports clubs, elderly care and specialist medical treatment throughout the year.
