Co-op invests £500K in East Kilbride funeral home
An East Kilbride funeral home has been given a half a million pound refurb.
The Co-operative Funeral Care on Maxwell Drive, which supports three jobs for local people, has unveiled a new look and aims to better serve the local community of East Kilbride following a full refurbishment.
The funeral home features a service chapel that can now accommodate up to 70 guests and a meeting room has been added to the venue, which will be used by local community groups in the area as a space to connect with one another.
Co-op Funeralcare has been carbon neutral since 2011 and all of the electricity used in its funeral homes and care centres comes from renewable sources.
Stuart Fowler, Co-op Funeralcare Regional Operations Manager in South West Scotland told Lanarkshire Live: "The recent investment in our East Kilbride funeral home enables us to provide sector-leading facilities and continue to provide the high-standards of care Co-op Funeralcare prides itself on and we’re delighted to unveil the home’s fresh, modern look which enables us to continue to support families in a calm, private and dignified setting.
"It is our great privilege to support communities of East Kilbride as they navigate the loss of a loved one.”
