Dallas McMillan have chosen Cancer Support Scotland to be their Charity of the Year for 2017.
The solicitors, who specialise in Personal injury, Litigation, Corporate, Commercial Property and Private Client, have been hosting their own fundraising activities as well as taking part in some of our events throughout 2017.
Getting a jump start on 2017, the team have already held a number of fundraising events in their office including a Christmas Jumper Day, a Wear Red dress down day all to raise funds. Throughout spring and summer members of the team participated in a zip slide across the Clyde and participated in the Bellahouston Fun Run. Both days raised incredible amounts of money for our charity.
Spurred on from the success of these events, Dallas McMillan held their first ever race night at Hillhead Sports Club, Glasgow on Friday 1st September 2017. As well as generating funds from the races on the night, they also raised funds through a raffle and an auction with the overall result that the sum of £9,000 was raised for Cancer Support Scotland.
Senior Partner Forbes Leslie said:
“We were delighted to nominate Cancer Support Scotland as our charity partner for 2017 and were equally delighted with the significant sum we raised for them following the race night. All the funds raised go to Cancer Support Scotland to assist them with their important work”
The support from the Dallas McMillan team throughout the year has been absolutely phenomenal and their funding has helped to continue to provide counselling and complementary therapies to cancer patients, their family and carers when they need it most.
We are delighted that Dallas McMillan chose us as their Charity of the Year 2017 will continue to support us in 2018. A massive thank you to the whole team for all their hard work and dedication to Cancer Support Scotland.
Skipton Building Society
We were privileged to be chosen by Skipton Building Society's Glasgow Branch as their Charity of the Year for 2016. The team at Skipton organised a number of events in branch including a Robert Burns Raffle as well as supporting our quiz night and our Heel Appeal.
As well as support from the Glasgow Branch, Paul Fenn the Director Branch Distribution supported our Heel Appeal all the way from the Building Society’s Head Office in Skipton. Paul teetered around the office for an hour in sky scraping heels to raise funds for us.
The Skipton team have agreed to continue to support us throughout 2017 as well.
Ladies of Insurance
Our Ladies of Insurance committee are an inspirational group of women who all work in the insurance sector in Glasgow. Norrelle King, Ashley Clancy, Nichola Martin, Cathryn McKinnie, Sharon Learmonth and Elaine McCrink have all pledged their commitment to raise funds for Cancer Support Scotland.
They have held two events so far, a Stars in Their Eyes tribute night which raised over £2,800 and more recently the fantastic Summer Ball in August which smashed the £5,000 target the set themselves for the ball.
After the Summer Ball, Norrelle said “It’s really lovely to be able to give something back, to help ensure the wonderful services of Cancer Support Scotland can continue. Our guests had a fantastic night, support from the insurance sector was fabulous and the generosity of donors and prize winners amazing. Thank you everyone! ”
We are incredibly grateful to the Ladies of Insurance for their continued support and for pulling together to help cancer patients, their families and carers. Groups like this are really important to Cancer Support Scotland as they are able to generate funds and spread the word about Cancer Support Scotland through their extensive networks.
