A group of James Frew employees, including their very own GasSure Mascot - Flameish, recently signed up & smashed a popular event in Glasgow, raising an incredible £4900.44!!
On the 28th of April, almost 40 members of staff, family & friends took on the Kilt Walk in aid of raising funds for a local charity called Whiteleys Retreat. Whiteleys Retreat provides therapeutic short breaks for children, young people and their families with cancer and life altering illnesses in the UK. The charity offers two high quality, five star assisted catering cottages where families can enjoy short therapeutic breaks complemented with a variety of animal, art, environmental, holistic, music and recreational therapies completely free.
James Frew Ltd. kindly paid for all participants’ registration fees and transport totalling an additional £1400 to encourage as many people to join in as possible.
The company managed to raise a total of £4900.44 by asking friends, family and suppliers to donate anything they can. Thanks to the support of The Hunter Foundation, this total is also topped up by a further 40%, meaning a final total count of £6860.62!
James Frew Ltd. would like to say a huge thank you to all who walked on behalf of the company and all who kindly donated to help raise this incredible amount.
