BRANCHES of the Royal Bank of Scotland across south Fife have helped raise £3000 for our High-5 Maggie’s campaign.
Staff from 12 branches of RBS South Fife volunteered at collections, sold second hand books and Christmas cards, organised sales of home baking and, to celebrate their achievements, held a fundraising night at the Old Ship Inn, Lochgelly, which donated the buffet and venue for free.
The region, which includes Kirkcaldy, Aberdour, Burntisland, Cardenden, Dalgety Bay, Cowdenbeath, Kelty, Kinross, Milnathort, Inverkeithing and Dunfermline, raised a total of £1500 and the RBS Community Fund agreed to double the amount to £3000.
Jane Paxton, local chief executive officer of RBS South Fife Local Market, said: “My team jumped at the chance to help such a deserving cause based in our local community, especially as some of the team have had personal experience of the centre and it’s facilities.
“We look forward to continuing our support of the Maggie’s Centre during 2012.”
Tu Edwards, community fundraiser, Maggie’s Fife, said: “I want to thank RBS, Jane, her team and customers across South Fife for their support and commitment.
“They have really come together to make such a positive difference to Maggie’s Fife. I would like to say a big well done!”
