“We have teamed up with some top establishments to create the Maggie’s Staycation Raffle and we are delighted that Smith Anderson has once again agreed to support us by match funding this initiative up to £4k.

“We are truly grateful for their ongoing backing.”

The key summer fundraiser will help support Maggie’s work with people living with a cancer diagnosis.

It relies almost entirely on donations to operate, and is helping more people than ever.

Added Adam: “Fundraising remains extremely challenging, so our hope is that with the raffle we have found an exciting and accessible way for people to support Maggie’s and all those who use the centre.

“Hopefully, people will be feeling lucky and will treat themselves as there are some amazing prizes up for grabs.”

Olivia Slater, sales director at Smith Anderson said: “We love being able to work with this amazing charity and we’re excited to be involved with the Maggie’s Staycation Raffle this summer.

“Maggie’s Fife has an incredible team in Kirkcaldy who have supported many of our employees over the last decade and we are delighted to give them our ongoing support as our chosen charity”.
