An incredible donation of £1,200 has been made to a nearby charity in the memory of former Calderside Academy pupil and Blantyre man, Marcus Whitelaw.
Marcus (28) was suddenly and tragically hit by a train in Cambuslang Station back in May 2016 and is missed by many.
The money raised by relatives and family will be given to William Hunter House Lifehouse via the Salvation Army, which helps homelessness and reintegration of people fallen on harder times, back into the community. We’re sure it will be of some comfort to the family that such kindness and good will come from this donation.
The family wish to convey their sincere thanks to everybody who donated and further commented that Marcus would have been extremely proud. Blantyre will remember you Marcus.
