Bankers based at the Clydesdale bank in Grangemouth have raised the amazing sum of £873 for a Bo’ness family.
Logan Fox, (7), who lives with his mum and dad, Lianne and Adam Fox, suffers from cerebral palsy.
The family need to make substantial alterations to the property in order to make it more user friendly and accessible for Logan, who has to use a wheelchair.
Staff and customers at the bank’s Grangemouth branch heard of the family’s plight and decided to try to do something which would help.
The charity fundraiser which included a treasure hunt, tombola and quizzes was designed to not only raise funds for the Fox family, but to also highlight and raise awareness of cerebral palsy.
The family home at Liddle Drive needs an external wheelchair ramp fitted and a wet floor shower room, as well as a stairlift.
The bank’s Grangemouth branch manager, Vicki Nairn, said: “We are a customer focused bank and for the last 175 years have been commited to serving and supporting the communities we’re a part of.
“It’s fantastic to have been able to support our customers Lianne and Adam Fox in raising funds to help care for their son Logan.
“We would like to thank all of our customers, family and friends in the community for coming along and supporting the event, as well as the local businesses who donated prizes.
“We hope that the proceeds will go some way towards improving the quality of life for Logan.”
