BIG-HEARTED staff at Pacific have stepped in to help out one of the most impressive children’s charities in the country.
The guys who work in the new bespoke joinery workshop gave of their time and their skills to make betting paddles for Ronald McDonald House Glasgow, who are hosting their annual Sports Dinner next month.
Donna Williams and Galen Turner popped along to present the paddles – and two giant heart-shaped red pin boards – to Fundraiser Stephanie Beglin at Ronald McDonald House Glasgow, which is situated within the campus of the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital.
The hugely impressive house provides a home from home for the families of seriously ill little ones who are having treatment at the Royal Hospital for Children nearby or at other hospitals in the west of Scotland.
This welcoming and safe base next to the hospital provides families with 31 beautiful bedrooms, kitchen stations, lounges, games room and laundry facilities.
This allows them to forget the stress of being away from home and concentrate on what matters most – the wellbeing of their children.
Everything is provided free of charge, so the charity needs lots of support from donors, whether that’s through people buying items from their Amazon Wishlist or volunteering within the house and at events or even straightforward fundraising.
Stephanie said: “You guys at Pacific have blown us away with your kindness and your skills. Your actions are going to help us raise money for families who need our support and help us keep the House as welcoming as possible for everyone who comes here.
“You have our gratitude and our friendship – and we look forward to seeing you at the big night.”
The Sports Dinner – at the Glasgow Marriott Hotel on November 15, 2019 – is one of THE events on the Scottish charity calendar and will feature speeches from former Celtic, West Ham and Scotland footballer Frank McAvennie and famed sprinter George McNeill.
The betting paddles will be issued to every table on the evening, making it easy for participants in the auctions that are planned to place their bets by holding them up.
The pin boards will be added to the two that are already in position within the building, displaying the life stories of the “wee stars” associated with the House.
