A YOUNG NURSE has started a tuck shop in Glasgow Royal Infirmary out of her own pocket.

Laura Duffy, 33 from Blantyre, works in the acute admissions unit at the Glasgow Royal Infirmary, was given a refund from an insurance broker.

She decided to use the £100 to start a free tuck shop for the 68 patients in the acute admissions unit at the hospital.

Laura and other staff have been distributing the tuck shop around the ward.

A fellow employee at the Infirmary told The Glasgow Times: "Laura's fellow staff all started to collect for the trolly from friends and family.

"We now go round the unit and give out treats to patients that are not allowed any visitors during this unprecedented times and had no money in with them."

"The patient love the little treats and magazines to keep their spirits up and minds entertained."
