Strathcarron Hospice has been supporting families in the Forth Valley, Cumbernauld and Kilsyth for forty years
Attractions across central Scotland are set to be lit in blue to mark a hospice's milestone anniversary.
On 21 April 1981, Strathcarron Hospice welcomed its first patient, and since then has cared for grandparents, parents and loved ones with specialist compassionate care.
To mark the occasion, landmarks across Forth Valley, Cumbernauld and Kilsyth will light up blue this evening (Wednesday 21 April).
Sites including the Wallace Monument in Stirling, Speirs Centre in Alloa, Falkirk Wheel and North Lanarkshire Council's Civic Centre will all take part.
Strathcarron Hospice chief executive, Irene Mckie, said: "We are delighted with these gestures across Forth Valley, Cumbernauld and Kilsyth. It has always been a great privilege for us to provide our service to our local community. After such a difficult year when our staff have worked so hard to keep services going and expand our community based care, it is a huge morale boost for them to have this recognition. Thank you so much for your support”
