Clydebank & West End Funeral Director J&T McColgan has been named the best medium sized funeral planner in the West Dunbartonshire/Greater Glasgow region at this year’s Funeral Planner of the Year Awards, run by funeral plan provider Golden Charter.
Hosted by radio DJ Ken Bruce, the awards took place at the spectacular National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh and featured a performance by the world-famous Red Hot Chilli Pipers.
In addition to the Funeral Planner of the Year accolade, the Woodland Trust has dedicated trees on behalf of J&T McColgan which are to be planted locally at a Woodland Trust site in recognition of the company’s achievement.
Jane McAllister Director of J&T McColgan Funeral Directors said:
“It is a great honour to receive this award. Special thanks to all the team at J & T McColgan for their professionalism, sensitivity and support to families both at need and pre-need.”
Golden Charter CEO Suzanne Grahame said:
“The respected and caring work of independent funeral directors within their local communities often goes unrecognised and so it gives me great pleasure to congratulate the team at J&T McColgan for their tremendous achievement in winning this award. The award recognises the excellent service the team from J&T McColgan has delivered to their local community, by helping individuals through the funeral plan process and supporting families when they need it the most.”
The Funeral Planner of the Year Awards celebrate the independent funeral directors who are excelling in promoting pre-paid funeral plans, and by doing so providing peace of mind for families that everything is taken care of.
When you are thinking about something as important as your funeral arrangements, it makes sense to talk directly to the experts – your local independent funeral director. Unlike some funeral planning companies who restrict your choices and limit you to ‘set’ plans, we’ll take the time to discuss your requirements in detail and help tailor a plan to suit you.
Acceptance is guaranteed – so why not find out more today?
