Why did you decide to fundraise for your chosen cause?

We chose the Anne Rowling Clinic for our fundraiser because Helen contracted Transverse Myelitis, a rare neurological condition, in July 2019 and has received the best attention, help and support from the Anne Rowling Clinic in Edinburgh. More research needs to be done to find out the causes of TM and other neurological conditions, so we felt the money would be put to good use and help lead towards new treatments for these conditions.

How did you raise money?

We used the opportunity of our Golden Wedding celebrations as a fundraiser. It was a good chance to get 80+ people contributing to a worthwhile cause. We had a great celebration with family and friends at Crieff Hydro Hotel and managed to raise a decent amount. Thanks to all our guests who contributed.

Fundraising wisdom

Use the opportunities of birthdays, anniversaries and other significant life events to cajole friends and family to donate instead of giving you presents that either don’t need or want.
