Over the years, the shop has played an essential role in raising funds for hospice care, contributing to the comfort and well-being of patients facing life-limiting illnesses.

Volunteers, staff, and supporters have worked together tirelessly to ensure that the shop remains at the heart of its local community.

Nicola Cannon, hospice shop manager, said: “We would just like to say a big thank you to our volunteers, former staff, customers, donators, and local community who have all over the last 30 years made the shop what it is today, a vibrant part of the Rutherglen community!

“We’re incredibly touched by the kindness which local people show the hospice with their support. Each item bought or donated really does make a difference to patients living with life-limiting and terminal illnesses.”
