Thank you to each and every one of our past and current supporters. It is because of you we are able to support 1100 families to meet the extraordinary challenges presented by HD and live a better quality of life. It cannot be understated how grateful we are.
Have a look at ‘Our Fundraisers’ picture gallery which shows some of the fantastic work people have been doing over the years:
Massive thank you to staff in the Glasgow Office of Zurich insurance who have chosen to support the Financial Wellbeing Service through the Zurich Community Trust multi-year funding scheme. This means an incredible donation of £5000 a year for 3 years! In helping secure the future of this project they have provided families with access to information, confidential advice, guidance and support on a range of money issues; accessing welfare benefits, debt and planning for the future. Thank you so much to everyone at Zurich and special thanks to Karen Stevely for nominating us for this amazing support.
In celebration of their 25th anniversary, the wonderful team at Graham Environmental Services Ltd have been doing a year of fundraising. They have set a target off raising £25 000 to split evenly between ourselves, CHAS and Tayside Children with Cancer and Leukaemia. With fab events from a golf day, bake day, 80s disco, quiz night, sponsored bike ride, pop up charity shop and culminating in a Charity Ball in February, they have gone into this full steam ahead and we really appreciate the efforts and kindness of everyone involved! Go guys!
Since 12 November, 2018, Co-op Members have chosen to support Scottish Huntington’s Association (SHA) with their 1% and have raised £220.91 for the cause. This will be the first of four payments we will receive from the Co-op Local Community Fund.
There is still £1,091.45 up for grabs, and the more members who choose SHA and buy own brand Co-op products and services, the more we will benefit. SHA will be live for members to choose until 27 October 2018. To help us boost our profile we would like to encourage members to choose our cause within the following Co-op stores:
- Co-op, McDonald Road, Edinburgh EH7 4LU
- McKenzie & Millar, Ferry Road, EH4 2TX
- McKenzie & Millar, Leith, EH6 5HZ
- McKenzie & Millar, Piershill, EH8 7BR
What are you waiting for! Get along to these stores, get buying and get to be a part of helping families impacted by Huntington’s Disease.
