We are delighted to announce that our dedicated charity for 2017 is the Beatson Cancer Charity. The Beatson Cancer Charity is committed to securing significant funding to support and enhance the treatment, care and well-being of current, former and future cancer patients and their families. It was chosen by our members as part of our membership survey earlier in the year. Thousands of votes were cast and the Beatson Cancer Charity was the unanimous winner.
Dawn Ferguson, Corporate Partnerships Manager said: “Beatson Cancer Charity is overwhelmed to have been voted as charity partner with an overwhelming number of members voting to support our patients and their families. We are very grateful to everyone at Glasgow Credit Union. Their generosity will have a direct impact on thousands of cancer patients and their families, both now and in the future, through the dedicated work of the charity. We exist to enhance and support the lives of the 8,000 new patients that we welcome through our doors each year. We provide a range of complimentary therapies, a hairdressing and wig-fitting service, specialist clinical posts, pioneering research projects and a variety of specialist equipment.”
We’re working on some exciting fundraising events and will let you know how to get involved soon!
