Three charities have shared gift support totalling £9,000 from the Scottish Association of Meat Wholesalers (SAMW), drawing on funds raised during a charity auction at the Association’s 2017 conference and dinner, held in Glasgow.
"It’s always a privilege to be able to distribute the generous contributions made by association members and guests to such deserving causes,” said SAMW president, Frank Clark. “This year’s charities, specially chosen by individual members of our executive committee, are each fulfilling a vital role in their selected fields and we’re delighted to be able to play a small part in assisting them.”
Kidney Kids Scotland were absolutely delighed to receive the £3000 share of this fantastic fundraising. Commenting on this fantastic support Karen MacFarlane of Kidney Kids said:
“Chronic renal failure is a rare condition but when it occurs there is no cure for it,” said Karen MacFarlane of Kidney Kids Scotland. “The treatment route in such cases is either dialysis or a transplant with a transplant in a child only lasting an average of seven years. We fund equipment and staff salaries as part of our work but our main commitment is to families and supporting them direct. To do that we rely of gifts such as the one we’ve received from SAMW, for which we’d like to say a huge thank you.”
