Chamber Charity of the Year

Date Posted: 31 Oct, 2023

The chamber recently visited one of its main charities of the year to present a cheque from funds raised via member donations from Rocco, the Christmas lunch, and our annual golf day, played this year at Ranfurly Castle Golf Club. 

Our two main charities for the last year have been Accord Hospice and the Renfrewshire Toy Bank.

Accord is an adult hospice, established in 1982 to provide palliative care for the population of Renfrewshire.  Care is provided in their eight bedded in-patient unit and through a variety of community orientated services.  Over 1200 patients and their families are supported in the community, at home and in the hospice.

The Renfrewshire Toy Bank provides over 8000 Renfrewshire children a year with Easter eggs, Halloween costumes, birthday presents and Christmas gifts.  Without the support of local businesses and the public the toy bank would not be possible.

Following our visit to Accord Chamber President Derek J McNab said “What an impressive facility and even more impressive is the commitment everyone at Accord has to the people in their care and community.  Thank you for doing what you clearly all do so well.”
