Manor go “Macmillan”
The traditional Macmillan Coffee Morning and tombola – organised by staff of Manor Estates Housing Association, raised a total of £117.85 for the cancer charity. Supporting Macmillan has been a regular feature in the Associations calendar for a number of years and on each occasion staff exceed the previous year’s donations and totals.
In addition and during the month of October six staff of the Association staff are fundraising by participating in “Go Sober for October” on behalf of Macmillan Cancer Support. That means, for the full 31 days of October these hardy volunteers are going booze-free; jumping on the wagon or ditching the juice. Donations are already being made and the staff involved are hoping to raise as much as is possible for this worthwhile cause.
The Association will welcome any support (however big or small) and donations can be made by logging on to www.gosober.org.uk.
Chief Executive, Graeme Russell say’s – “Each year the staff of Manor Estates go above and beyond to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support. This year they exceeded themselves. Going sober for October will be a healthy, worthwhile and test for a number of us, but again demonstrates the commitment of our staff to help others less fortunate than ourselves or afflicted by this illness. Any staff member of a Scottish RSL who’d like to donate either the price of pint or the cost of a glass or two of prosecco to this worthy cause – can do so by logging in to the Go – Sober web site”
