Abstract Securities the developers of St Vincent Plaza, Glasgow’s newest speculative commercial office development is donating much needed funding for a new garden project that is being created for the patients of St Vincent’s Hospice in Renfrewshire.

St Vincent’s Hospice have for many years, aspired to create a community garden at the rear of the hospice. Recently they received funding for landscaping, but they still need to raise funds for pathways, plants and a sheltered seating area where patients, their families and the local community can enjoy the gardens. Archie Blair of Abstract Securities commented on the donation: “As we share a similarity in name, our St Vincent Plaza development team is helping the Hospice with a £1000 donation that will go to buy plants for the new garden project. We hope that our contribution will make a difference to the patients and families cared for by the Hospice.”
