City Building apprentices boost Glasgow hospice project

APPRENTICES from Glasgow’s City Building have helped out in a project to refurbish the city’s Marie Curie Hospice.

Eleven apprentices from the firm helped to repaint bedrooms and shared patient and family areas in partnership with paint firm Akzo Nobel/Cromadex. All of the labour and supplies were provided free of charge.

City Building’s contribution follows a staff fundraising drive for the hospice. Employees raised £7,000 by hosting a range of charity events, including bake sales and back waxes.

Marie Curie provides care and support for people living with a terminal illness.

Dr Graham Paterson, executive director of City Building said, “Our staff have a fantastic track record of volunteering for an array of worthy causes in and around Glasgow, and we are delighted to be part of the ongoing refurbishment of the Marie Curie Hospice, Glasgow. Getting our apprentices involved helps them to build their career and build Glasgow communities at the same time. We’re very proud of our staff and their continued efforts to support such an important and deserving cause in the city.”
