A helping hand towards building goal

A donation of more than £30,000 by CMS Window Systems has helped Glasgow’s Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice to take another step to reaching its goal of creating a new state-of-the-art palliative care and support facility.

The donation to the Brick by Brick Appeal by CMS will help towards the £21 million build costs required for the new hospice at Bellahouston Park. Work started on the new site back in September last year, but the hospice has still to raise £1.4m to reach its target and be ready as planned for patients to move in by Spring 2018.

The new hospice is needed to ensure that it better meets the requirements and vision for the future care of patients and their families. Services will be extended across the community and will include working with young people aged 16 years and upwards. It will continue to provide free person-centred and family-focused palliative care and support to a population of approximately 345,000, from across Glasgow, East Renfrewshire, Cambuslang and Rutherglen.

Jennifer Easson, capital appeal fundraiser at The Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice, said: “We’d like to thank everyone at CMS Window Systems for their support which has now exceeded £30,000 through the generous donations of both the business and the staff. 

“Having outgrown our much-loved home at Carlton Place, we are looking forward to what the new building at Bellahouston Park will bring to patients, families and everyone involved in their care and support. Key to this, however, will be reaching our fundraising target.”
