EVENT PUTTING CITY IN FRESH FO­CUS

Grate­ful char­ity serves up pas­tries for fundrais­ers

Evening Express (City Final) - - News -

FUNDRAIS­ING cy­clists had their ef­forts re­warded by an Aberdeen can­cer char­ity as they tucked into plate­fuls of pas­tries as a “thank you”.

Mem­bers of the city’s Bon Ac­cord Ro­tary Club ped­alled from the Mag­gie’s cen­tre in In­ver­ness to the cen­tre in Aberdeen this sum­mer to raise money for the can­cer char­ity.

Their gru­elling ef­fort raised £2,360 for the lo­cal base, which was enough to spon­sor a full day of sup­port there.

Mag­gie’s staff have now thanked the men for their ef­forts by lay­ing on a cel­e­bra­tory break­fast, fea­tur­ing var­i­ous en­tic­ing pas­tries, as they at­tended to see how the money raised had been spent.

The Mag­gie’s build­ing, which is sit­u­ated in the El­iz­a­beth Mont­gomerie Build­ing, part of Aberdeen Royal In­fir­mary, is open from 9am to 5pm from Mon­day to Fri­day and of­fers free prac­ti­cal, emo­tional and so­cial sup­port to peo­ple with can­cer and their fam­i­lies and friends.

Since open­ing nearly four years ago, Mag­gie’s Aberdeen has re­ceived more than 30,000 vis­its from peo­ple in the North-east fac­ing the dis­ease.
