Lord Provost's Queen Street Fund
Speaking about the decision to make a donation to the fund, North Lanarkshire Provost Jim Robertson said:
“The fund was set up to provide support to people affected by the tragic incident in Queen Street in which six people were killed.
“The events in Glasgow last week have shocked us all.
“All of us in North Lanarkshire will be thinking of the families of those who died.
“An incident such as this is appalling at any time of the year but is particularly distressing at Christmas.
“As a neighbouring authority, we would wish to show our solidarity with the people of Glasgow and also offer some practical help to those affected.
“That is why we will make a donation of £5000 to the Lord Provost’s Queen Street Fund.
“We wish that the families of those caught up in this tragedy can be offered every possible support.”
South Lanarkshire Council have also gifted £5000
