Kathy Murdoch, Centre Manager for Buchanan Galleries said: “Things are hotting up in the shopping centre this summer, and we are looking forward to hosting our tropical themed Mini Summer Fete to celebrate Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity and their admirable work that they’ve done for children in Glasgow for 20 years. 

“We’re all craving a little bit of sun and sand this summer, so why not join us at Buchanan Galleries and snap your own holiday postcard and support a fantastic cause without the need of jetting off to faraway lands!”

William McGowan, Head of Partnerships & Event at Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity said: “Summer is a time of warmth and joy, we wanted to bring some of the excitement of going away on holiday to shoppers at Buchanan Galleries, all the while supporting our patients in hospital.

“It’s with thanks to the continuous support from visitors and shoppers at Buchanan Galleries that we at Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity are able to continue our work for young patients who are undergoing life-changing treatments.”
