a BIG thank you has been sent out to everyone who took part in the delayed Maggie’s Friday fundraiser.
And the biggest thank you of the day went to Kingdom FM who held an all-day, on air auction which raised over £2000 for our Maggie’s Centre.
The local radio station dedicated its airwaves to the campaign from 6 a.m.–6 p.m. last Friday, raising a fantastic £2050 to help towards the centre’s running costs. The lines were buzzing throughout the day, and the football memorabilia was particularly well received, including a prize from O’Connell’s for a signed Raith Rovers shirt which will be presented to the winner at the Dunfermline game in January.
Another fantastic prize of a dinner for six at Maggie’s Fife cooked by top Scottish chef Christopher Trotter with produce provided by the Fife Farmers’ Market, was snapped up by a lucky local.
Tumong Edwards, community fundraiser at Maggie’s said: “The support we have received from all those who took part in the auction and from Kingdom FM has been amazing. I want to say a massive thank you to the team at Kingdom and everyone who donated an auction prize. This event has really helped us raise funds and awareness about what we do at Maggie’s Fife.”
Other Maggie’s Friday committee members including Fife Constabulary, Fife Fire and Rescue, the Fife Free Press and NHS Fife also held their own organised activities.
Mrs Edwards added: “The bad weather had caused Maggie’s Friday to be pushed back a week, and some people contacted me to let me know they had postponed their event.
“I would like to say thanks to all who were able to do something for this great fundraiser for Maggie’s Fife and to the committee for working hard to encourage people to do so.”
