Loose Change Adds Up

Staff using the restaurant at Forth Valley Royal Hospital are among the many customers who help raise money for charity, by popping their loose change into collecting boxes at the main tills.

The latest recipient of their generosity is the children’s ward where recent work with teacher Lissie Faulks had revealed she was keen to provide more technology for her pupils. Lissie, (pictured left) was presented with a cheque for £267 by Serco General Manager Lorraine Beattie (right). Also present were two patients from the ward, Abbiegail Hearns and John Milligan, and play leader Lisa Ross.

Expressing her gratitude to Serco and customers for collecting the money, Lissie Faulks said: “To me it is an example of positive partnership between Serco, NHS Forth Valley and Falkirk Education Services. This kind of partnership allows us to develop positive outcomes for children and young people.” Lorraine Beattie added: “At Serco, we are delighted to support the children’s ward fund this new technology”

The money will be used to purchase computer accessories and the remainder will go towards a new tablet.
