Grantown Hospice Shop Shows Community Spirit

11 May 2016

Here is a story from our Grantown shop.

Last week the Speyside Centre sadly burned down – a family business which has been running for 43 years and employs 25 members of staff. When a delivery of 1000 tea towels arrived for the centre, owner Betty Lambie was at a loss, with no premises from which to sell them. 

Our Highland Hospice shop in Grantown, run by Nicola Walsh and team, took a supply of towels to sell and created a wonderful window display which was shared on Facebook. Within 24 hours their facebook post was shared 325 times and other businesses from Aviemore, Carbridge, Boat of Garten and Kincraig started to offer to sell the tea towels. On Friday the Hospice had sold £400 worth of tea towels, which were selling at £5 each, before lunch time.

Well done to Nicola and team for showing community spirit and offering support during a time of need.

Huge thanks to Betty Lambie who, touched by the gesture of kindness, has offered to donate 50p back from the sale of every tea towel to Highland Hospice.

A lovely story of local people rallying together!
