As many of you will know, sadly Pepe Persichini who had run Lomond Stores for thirty five years and had become something of a legend in Balloch died suddenly back in the 8th March 2013. One of his special causes was that he had organised a collection for our local hospice for children, CHAS. So it was with great pride that we were able to send a cheque for £2,000 made up of funds contributed by customers and well wishers at Pepe's funeral. The letter of thanks has been posted in our shop window. We intend to carry on making a special collection for CHAS from the change left by our generous customers and will aim to make the regular annual gift to CHAS in memory of Pepe.
Lottery Good Causes
A further big thank you to all our customers who have purchased the National Lottery in Lomond Stores. Your contributions in the last 12 months have raised over £36,485 for Good Causes!
