CKD Galbraith Supports World's Biggest Coffee Morning
Tenants at Orbital House in East Kilbride and their neighbours joined thousands across the UK for Macmillan Cancer Support's biggest annual fundraising event.
Around 100 people stopped by for a charity cuppa and a chance to get to know their business neighbours when CKD Galbraith’s Head of Facilities Management Kash Bhatti organised the coffee morning at Orbital House on September 29th from 10am to 12pm.
The event, which included a raffle, the sale of Macmillan goods and donations for coffee and cakes provided by Coffee Stall in Orbital House, raised more than £340 for the charity that helps those affected by cancer.
The money raised will go towards enhancing the care available for people living with cancer, providing support for their families and expanding the resources available for Macmillan nurses, doctors and other professionals involved in delivering this care.
Property owners Peter Leggate and David Hardie were delighted to attend the event and welcomed the opportunity to meet and speak with tenants.
The lucky raffle winners were Joan Wilson of VWS Westgarth who won a two-night stay for two people at any Scottish Apex Hotel and Tracy Weber from Close Asset Finance won a dinner for two at the Crowne Plaza Hotel.
Kash Bhatti of CKD Galbraith said: “It was great to be part of a massive charity event for such a good cause. It gave us the chance to enhance the community feeling at Orbital House and strengthen communication and interaction between tenants to make the building a happy, healthy place to work.
“Our thanks go to the Apex Hotel and the Crowne Plaza Hotel who generously donated the raffle prizes.”
April Andrews of Macmillan said: “MacMillan Cancer Support simply could not do the work we do without our amazing supporters like Orbital House and CKD Galbraith. We would like to thank them for their kind support and promotion of a wonderful day, which not only raised an amazing amount for Macmillan but also raised awareness to the tenants in Orbital House of the work we do to help local people affected by cancer.”
