SPAR SCOTLAND DONATES £200 TO HELP NHS FIFE PATIENTS

Date Published:

SPAR Scotland has donated £200 to help patients at a hospital in Fife. When local resident Wendy Page got in touch with SPAR Scotland looking for support, the leading convenience store group in Scotland had to help.

“We became aware that patients are often admitted to hospital urgently with no personal possessions and no one to assist in delivering these.  With the hospital in lockdown families unable to take things to the hospital we know they would feel isolated,” she said.

“Fife Coronavirus Fundraisers would like to say a big thank you to SPAR Scotland for their generous £200 donation to our appeal for Victoria Hospital Kirkcaldy. This will go a long way to help patients with personal care items in these difficult times,” said Wendy.

Colin McLean, CEO of SPAR Scotland, added: “We are glad we can help contribute towards helping patients of the Victoria Hospital in Kirkcaldy. Many are admitted urgently with no provisions and no one able to assist as they themselves are in self-isolation. We hope this will go a small way to help these vulnerable patients.”
