What does the charity do?
We are pleased to be working with Anthony Nolan which supports people affected by blood cancer like leukaemia, and blood disorders.
Turcan Connell is aiming to raise £20,000 for the charity. For every £40 raised, Anthony Nolan can sign up a new donor to its register and this can help save the life of someone living with blood cancer or a blood disorder. If our target is met we could sign up to 500 people to the register.
How much have we raised so far?
We have started well with the Edinburgh Marathon Festival, seeing our team runners taking part in the 5K, 10K and half marathon over the course of a not so sunny May weekend, running a total of 130km! Their fantastic fundraising efforts brought in £1,500! To date, we have raised £2,690.48.
Over the next few months we will be undertaking a number of fundraising events to help achieve our ambitious fundraising target. This includes monthly dress down day & bake sales (including a TC Bake Off); our annual Charity hockey tournament; a team participating in the Kiltwalk; a member of staff jumping out of a plane; and the TC Christmas market.
