COFFEE lovers in Cumbernauld have helped raise cash for a children’s hospice.
A total of £1,050 was presented to Rachel House in Kinross which is part of the Children’s Hospice Association in Scotland thanks to a Win a Bear contest which was run in Costa in Cumbernauld’s Antonine Shopping Centre.
Customers paid a £1 to guess the name of the bear and the winner got to take the cuddly toy home for good.
Coffeepots, who run the Costa franchise in the town, recently opened up a second branch in the Antonine Shopping Centre and now employ 21 people in the town.
The company, run by Dennis and Kathryn Evans, have raised £25,000 during the past five years for a number of charities including The Costa Foundation, Breast Cancer Care, Rachel House, Aberlour and the Alzheimer’s Society.
