SRP donate funds to Salvation Army in Hamilton for Local Christmas Toy Appeal

Scottish Roads Partnership – Good Neighbour Fund Donation – December 2023

In association with the Hamilton Advertiser, the Salvation Army charity in Hamilton ran a Christmas Toy appeal for December 2023 to help provide Christmas gifts to several hundred disadvantaged children in the local area of South Lanarkshire. Scottish Roads Partnership (SRP), an Operation & Maintenance company for the M8 M73 M74 Motorway Improvements Project, as part of their ongoing ‘Good Neighbour Fund’, helped by donating £500 towards the appeal. On Monday 11 December 2023 Scottish Roads Partnership (SRP) Operations Manager Graham Drummond visited the Salvation Army Church Hall to view the appeals collection of newly purchased toys and gifts that would be given to needy families this festive season. Graham Drummond (centre), met with the Salvation Army Staff including Captain Wendy Leisk (on left) and a volunteer Press Officer Leona Greenan (on right). This is the nineteenth year the Hamilton Advertiser have ran the Christmas Toy Appeal with the support of other local businesses and support groups.

Normally a maximum grant of £500 each is available from the SRP ‘Good Neighbour’ fund. Application forms for the funding can be requested by contacting their admin manager Louise Berkley at or telephone 0800 042 0188.
