SPAR Erskine owned and operated by CJ Lang & Son and Limited has recently donated a generous £7,000 to their local charity – Erskine Veteran’s Hospice.

The money was raised through the sales of single- use carrier bags, which is costing shoppers 5p per bag.

As Scotland’s foremost provider of care for veterans and their spouses, Erskine offers unrivalled nursing, residential, respite and dementia care in their four homes throughout Scotland for UK veterans.

David Cunningham, Area Manager for SPAR Scotland said, “The staff of our Erskine store had nominated Erskine Veteran’s Hospice because of work of the Hospice in the local area.  We are delighted to be able to donate the money to this worthwhile cause from the carrier bag funds.”

Kirsten Graham, Corporate and Events Fundraising Manager for Erskine Hospice said: “We are delighted to welcome CJ Lang and Sons on-board as The Platinum Headline Event Sponsor for The Erskine Classic Car Show 2016 - an exciting, annual event which welcomes over 450 classic cars, supercars and one-offs to the family fun day. We are extremely grateful for the generous support of CJ Lang and Sons which will help to make a huge positive impact on the lives of the veterans cared for at Erskine.”
