Tweeddale MP joins in Christmas Celebration at Hay Lodge
David Mundell was on hand to join in the celebrations at Hay Lodge Hospital on Monday, at their annual Christmas party. The local MP was welcomed by staff and representatives from the WRVS charity, and was delighted to be there when a cheque for £3000 was presented to the hospital on behalf of WRVS.
Also in attendance at the party was Justice Minister Christine Graham MSP. After the visit, Mr Mundell commented: "It was great to be invited to this fun-filled festive event, and to share in the excitement of the occasion. The turn out and support was excellent, and it was clear from the hospitality, home baking and extensive buffet lunch that many people had put a lot of effort into making the party such a success.
“I'd like to congratulate the staff and thank them for all their continued hard work; they really do provide an invaluable service to the local community and I pay tribute to them."
