Local MSPs Shona Robison and Joe FitzPatrick joined staff of Lidl and George Cant, Director of Fairprint in a cheque presentation to cancer charity CLIC Sargent.
CLIC Sargent the cancer charity received a cheque for £350 as part of a three-way sponsorship tie-up between the MSPs, Lidl and Fairprint to produce this year’s joint Christmas card for the two MSPs and Dundee East MP Stewart Hosie.
The MSPs sponsored the prize of a card designing competition in local schools, Fairprint printed the card free and Lidl matched the funding with a cheque to their charity of the year, CLIC Sargent.
Dundee City East MSP Shona Robison said: “We will be sending out our joint Christmas card to around 1000 individuals and organisations this year and as the competition is part of a three-way tie up with sponsors Lidl and Fairprint it has led to a total donation of around £350 to the charitable work of Clic Sargent which supports children with cancer.
“We are delighted to be able to organise our official Christmas Cards in such a way that we can reward local artistic talent and facilitate contributions to a very worthy charity.”
