CARING cops have joined together to raise vital cash for Erskine Hospital. 

The kind-hearted bobbies from all across Renfrewshire held a coffee and cake morning at Renfrew Police Station which raised more than £100.

The staff wellbeing event gave officers the chance to learn more about the different support organisations within the police, including the Police Treatment Centre and Scottish Police Recreation Association. 

And on the back of it, £113.36 was raised to support the essential care provided by staff at Erskine for veterans. 

Inspector Cassie Glass, based in Johnstone, and Sergeant Geoff Smith, who works in Renfrew, visited the hospital last week to hand over the cheque. 

Inspector Glass said: “This was a chance for our staff to chat and seek wellbeing support locally. 

“We thought it was very fitting to support the work of Erskine due to it being just a few days after the 100 year anniversary of the Armistice. 

“It was a huge pleasure to visit the hospital and meet the veterans and staff-It’s such a fantastic facility.”

Across four care homes, two in Bishopton and one in Edinburgh and Glasgow respectively, Erskine cares for veterans and their families who need support following involvement with conflicts.

The charity is always in need of support and there are many ways in which you can fundraise for the cause.

People fundraise for Erskine at work, school, in the community, at home or by taking on individual challenges.
