Charity Partner 2019

Following two successful years of partnership with the Beatson Cancer Charity, we are delighted to announce that they will continue to be our Charity Partner for 2019.

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 Beatson Ball

In November 2018 we were very proud to be the main sponsor of the Beatson Ball and we’re delighted to announce that we will be the main sponsor again for 2019’s ball. Their annual ball is a night of glitz and glamour celebrating the wonderful work of the Beatson Cancer Charity whilst raising vital funds.
