Charity Partner 2018

In January 2018, our members voted the Beatson Cancer Charity as our charity partner for the second year running! The charity exists to enhance and support the lives of the 8,000 new patients that they welcome through their doors each year. They provide a range of complementary therapies, a hairdressing and wig-fitting service, specialist clinical posts, pioneering research projects and a variety of specialist equipment.

Alarmingly, more than one in three people are affected by cancer in the West of Scotland – the highest cancer rate in Europe. There are 10,000 new cases of cancer registered in Glasgow and Clyde every year.

Fundraising

Staff at the credit union are fundraising for the Beatson in a variety of ways, including an office tuck-shop, running £5 Friday prize draws, ‘Wear Something Yellow’ day, seasonal quizzes for big sporting events and a Great British Bake Off inspired tea party.

Sponsor of the 2018 Beatson Ball

This year we are very proud to be the main sponsor of the Beatson Ball, held at the Hilton Glasgow on Friday 2nd November. The annual ball is a night of glitz and glamour celebrating the wonderful work of the Beatson Cancer Charity whilst raising vital funds.
