Back to school bank cheque


The Bank to School Bank in South Lanarkshire has received a £50 donation Christina McKelvie, MSP for Hamilton, Larkhall and Stonehouse.

As part of the ComRes Summer 2016 MSP Survey, Christina was recently interviewed with a donation given to charity on behalf of the MSP.

Christina was joined by Back to School Bank patrons Councillor Stephanie Callaghan, Carla Di Mambro and Sandra Mills.

Commenting on the donation, Christina said:

“Every year a range of MSPs are contacted by organisations looking for input into their consultancy surveys.

“This year was no different and I was happy to take part in the ComRes survey so I could donate to the Back to School Bank.

“Stephanie, Carla and Sandra all do an inspiring job in providing for Lanarkshire families – and with winter on the way donations are needed more than ever.

“Winter is coming and now more than ever, the Back to School Bank needs supplies.

“You can still donate to the Back to School Bank, with blazers, coats, shirts and jackets all kindly accepted.”

If you wish to donate to the Back to School back, or wish for more information, please contact Councillor Callaghan on 07904 352694.
