CHAS appeal to shoppers

STAFF at the Children's Hospice Association Scotland (CHAS) are asking Tesco shoppers to donate 'schools and club' vouchers.

HOSPICE: Robin House in Balloch

Last year CHAS supporters collected a staggering 44,000 Tesco vouchers which were used to provide a range of creative toys and musical instruments for Robin House in Balloch, Rachel House in Kinross and the home service, helping families in their own home.

This year the charity hopes to receive 50,000 vouchers. One Tesco voucher is issued for every £10 spent in store.

Debbie Mooney, fundraising manager said: "The musical instruments funded by the vouchers last year provide fun activities and sessions for the children on home visits, at social events and when we use our mini bus as a travelling sensory studio.

"This year we'd like to provide even more equipment for the children and families to enjoy and hope that our supporters will help us reach our target by Sunday 20 May."

The vouchers can be handed in to the West of Scotland fundraising office or posted to Debbie Mooney, Children's Hospice Association Scotland, 2nd Floor, Buchanan Tower, Cumbernauld Road, Stepps G33 6HZ.
