APPRENTICES at Glasgow’s City Building LLP have raised £10,000 towards the new Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice by taking part in a number of charity events.

The donation has been made to the Brick by Brick Appeal following a charity football match, golf tournament, sponsored walks and bake offs.

Staff pledged to raise the cash after joining the hospice’s 50/10 Club – a group of 50 businesses each raising £10,000 to pay for the atrium area in the new hospice, which is to be built in the city’s Bellahouston Park.

Graham Paterson, executive director of City Building LLP, said, “Our people have an excellent track record of fundraising for a range of very deserving causes. The hospice is a charity which is very close to their hearts and we’re extremely proud that their efforts have raised such an impressive sum to support the appeal,” 

City Building LLP is currently training 350 apprentices across all construction trades.
