Fife Housing Group has presented a big cheque to Maggie’s Fife for a total of £3,972 – following a year of fundraising activities.

Colleagues at Fife Housing Group chose Maggie’s as their charity of the year in recognition of the fantastic work they do to support those living with cancer, something which many colleagues have had personal experience of.

The team also wanted to fundraise for Maggie’s to honour one of their colleagues, Callum, who was battling cancer at the time. Sadly, Callum lost his fight in February this year.

Colleagues from Fife Housing Group, Callum’s family and Adam Kent, centre fundraising manager from Maggie’s Fife, attended the cheque presentation and dedication of a bench decorated with Callum’s favourite quotes and lyrics, in his memory.

During their year of fundraising, colleagues completed lots of fun and sometimes daring activities, including a firewalk, abseiling from the Falkirk Wheel, a 250km cycle challenge, a bake sale and the Loch Ness Marathon.

Nicki Donaldson, chief executive officer from Fife Housing Group, said: “We were delighted to be able to raise money for Maggie’s this year, especially with one of our own going through their own cancer journey. It’s an organisation that touches a lot of people’s lives and we were so proud to support Maggie’s at such a poignant time.

“Finishing our year of fundraising with a cheque presentation and unveiling of Callum’s bench was an important end to an emotional time for all of us.

“We are grateful for the work that Maggie’s do and I know colleagues will continue to support them in the future.”

Fife Housing Group are delighted to have supported such a worthwhile cause over the last year and will continue supporting charities that make a difference in their local communities.
