With just a month to go until our Maggie’s Centre’s fifth anniversary dinner, the organising committee is busy finalising seating plans, collecting prizes and contacting sponsors.
And they have made a final call to Fife companies to book up as there are only a few tables left!
The event will be attended by Sarah Brown, wife of Kirkcaldy MP, Gordon Brown, and hosted by BBC television and radio presenter Cathy McDonald.
Tables of ten range from £600-£1000 for a drinks reception, three course dinner with entertainment and a raffle, auction and silent auction.
The prizes on offer include an exclusive signed Jack Vettriano print; an overnight stay in Balbirnie House Hotel; an exclusive photo shoot courtesy of award-winning Press photographer Walter Neilson- the man who took “that” photograph of Kate Middleton - and a three-course meal cooked in the comfort of your own home by television chef, Eadie Manson,.
The organising committee, including Tu Edwards, Maggie’s Fife community fundraiser; Marilyn Livingstone, former Kirkcaldy MSP; Pamela Caira, Fife businesswoman and Tanya Scoon, reporter with the Fife Free Press, have all been working extremely hard to ensure the dinner is a success and raises as much as possible for our Maggie’s Centre.
And they are very grateful to the Fife business community which has given fantastic support by taking tables, sponsoring the event, or donating prizes
Pamela Caira, Fife businesswoman and former owner of Catchline PR in Kirkcaldy, said: “I am very happy to be involved in helping to organise this event.
“In the five years it has been in Kirkcaldy the Maggie’s Centre has become an integral part of the local community.
‘‘I came on board because I want it to continue to be at the heart of the community.
“Cancer is not just a physical, but also a mental disease and it affects many people - not just the person who has it.
‘‘Maggie’s is there for their family and friends too and it does a wonderful job.”
Tanya Scoon, a reporter with the Press for over 20 years, added: “I have been involved with the centre from when it was just an idea, right through the Press’ fundraising campaign and seeing all the hard work coming to fruition with the building of the centre.
“I was delighted to be asked to help on the committee and to help support the amazing work that Maggie’s does in Fife.”
