CUSTOMERS at a Helensburgh pub are spending this week writing personal messages of thanks to one of the country’s best-known cancer charities – on specially-designed beer mats.

The Ardencaple Hotel is playing host to the initiative until today (Friday, October 8).

Once complete, the messages will be added, collage-style, to a 10-foot super-sized ‘thank you’ card addressed to Macmillan nurses and healthcare professionals across the UK.

Ryan Allan, general manager of Ardencaple Hotel, said: “We’re very proud to support Macmillan. Their work impacts many in our community and we’re passionate in our efforts to back the invaluable work they do.

“Alongside fund-raising, this year we’re creating hundreds of personal messages from teams and customers across the UK, to show our heartfelt appreciation.”
