THE phones were red hot at May Terrace, Giffnock on Sunday for Cosgrove Care, writes SHARON MAIL.
More than 900 calls were made by 25 volunteers during the annual phone day appeal.
Cosgrove Care faces some tough new challenges due to the current economic climate and cutbacks in public funding.
Community fundraising officer Sharon Kaye revealed that more than £10,000 was raised.
In addition to providing support and care services for people who have learning disabilities, autistic spectrum disorders and mental health issues, Cosgrove is proud to have created, through various events and activities, a social structure for those who use its services.
This has the added benefit of the respite that it provides to families.
Cosgrove Care is also working on a legacy initiative to increase awareness of the benefits of legacy-giving.
A legacy from a lady who enjoyed reading and crosswords is being used to fund an annual outing to the Aye Write Festival for members of our Adult Creative Writing Group.
A will-writing service is being provided free of charge by three firms of Glasgow solicitors.
