Ailsa directors Jim Harold and George Batters were delighted to be invited to a presentation and tour of the newly transformed St Andrew’s Hospice in Airdrie. Jim and George are fervent supporters of the Hospice and were honoured to have their fundraising efforts over the last 12 years recognised as this important milestone was reached.
St Andrew’s Hospice provides specialist palliative care to people living with life-limiting illnesses. They are a charity organisation providing their services free of charge to the adult population of Lanarkshire, without distinction of race, gender or creed. Central to their ethos and mission is to provide support not only for patients, but also for their loved ones and carers too.
The £9 million refurbishment and reconfiguration of St Andrew’s Hospice is newly completed. The Hospice now has 21 single rooms with en-suite facilities and 3 multi-occupancy rooms, also with en-suite facilities. Fresh, modern design and décor with flexible heating and better lighting are key aspects of the room design. All of the public spaces have also been upgraded and fitted out with new fixtures and fittings which will add to the comfort of our patients, their families and visitors to the Hospice.
