Yorkhill Foundation's Gemma receives the Lambhill Residents' cheque

Lambhill Care home residents and staff pictured here, recently handed over a cheque for £150 to the Sick Children’s Hospital in Yorkhill.
They raised the money from a Christmas fun draw in the Kinning Park care home and got matched funding from Lambhill owners, Sam and Sunita Poddar. But they couldn’t deliver it till now because of the snow and ice.
‘Everyone was happy to do this for the children,’ said Syd Duman, the Activities Manager. ‘And the night before we went to Yorkhill, resident Margaret Dillon knitted a little jacket for a premature baby. She does a lot of knitting. Activities like that and the fun draw, keep our residents young at heart.’
Said Gemma Porter of the Yorkhill Foundation: “ QUOTE TO COME.”
Included in the picture are Lambhill residents Hugh Murray (in wheelchair), Margaret Dillon (standing in navy suit) and Isa Murray (in wheelchair) Isa and Hugh are not related. Staff include Tommy Donegan, George Grey, Julie Allan, Iain Ballantyne, Tracy Show and Lilly Pushpam. Yorkhill Foundation’s Gemma is in the centre holding the cheque.
