Buchanan Galleries has supported Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity for 10 years, raising £½ million for children and young people facing life-limiting illnesses, their families, and the dedicated staff who care for them.

Donations from the public via Buchanan Galleries’ various fund-raising initiatives and purchases made at the charity’s flagship store within the centre have also helped fund hundreds of life-changing projects, services, and medical equipment.

William McGowan, Head of Business Development and Events for Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity said, “Easter time is always so exciting for children, with the school holidays, springtime activities and of course, a visit from the Easter Bunny. Many children however will spend this Easter in hospital, which can be challenging for them and their families. Parents and patients tell us just how much a little treat can brighten their day in hospital, so we are incredibly grateful to Buchanan Galleries for their continued support and for this generous donation.”

Kathy Murdoch, Centre Director at Buchanan Galleries said: “Easter is a time to cherish our loved ones and celebrate the coming together of our community, and as a shopping centre we wanted to emulate that through our continuous support for this wonderful charity.

“Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity and the dedicated NHS staff are tirelessly committed to giving children and young people in the hospital the special care they require; we hope this small gesture can put a smile on the children’s faces this Easter, as they enjoy this chocolatey treat!”
