Erskine Week

We are a wee bit late in posting this message, but 1st - 8th June is Erskine Week

Purple is the colour that Erskine are using to promote the fundraising week this year, to help provide support to 1,370 ex-Service men and women.

For ninety five years, since The Princess Louise Scottish Hospital for Limbless Sailors and Soldiers was opened in Erskine, they have been caring for those injured in battle. At the end of the First World War little did they know that servicemen and women would still be serving in dangerous war zones and would still be requiring their care well into the 21st Century.

Here is their appeal in their own words:

Be Proud to be Purple and help us raise vital funds for Scottish veterans.

We are asking you to help us by doing any fundraising you can throughout 2011 but ideally up until 8th June.

There are hundreds of exciting ways to take part; plan a purple party, paint your face purple, run a marathon wearing Erskine’s purple t-shirt or simply wear a purple tie or dress to work for the day. In doing this, every pound you raise helps Erskine make more of a difference to the lives of the 1,370 ex-Service men and women who rely on us.

Your contribution will help us give them the special care they deserve.
