Cancer Charity Seeks Basket Cases

Macmillan Cancer Support in the West of Scotland is seeking help from local organisations this Easter as it tries to get chocoholics involved in its egg-cellent Guess the Name competition.

The charity is asking local businesses, schools and public service organisations to pick up one of its Easter Bunny Baskets which is choc-a-block with enough Easter Eggs to satisfy any sweet tooth as well as a cuddly Easter bunny, name sheet with 100 names on it and an envelope containing the bunny’s real name to reveal the lucky prize winner.

For a donation of just £1 local people can guess the bunny’s name with the egg-static winner receiving the basket and all the mouth watering Easter goodies inside – and that’s no yolk!

Macmillan Fundraising Manager Susan Selkirk is hoping local organisations will get involved and help encourage people to shell out a little bit more this Easter to help local families affected by cancer.

She said: “We’re looking for shops, hotels, community centres and schools to take one of our fantastic Easter Bunny Baskets.

“This competition is fun for all ages and is a great way for you to engage with your customers or visitors and raise money for people affected by cancer.

“This event helps Macmillan to raise thousands of pounds each year and with your support we will continue to provide medical, financial and emotional support services to those who need it most.”

If you are interested in getting involved then hop over to the phone and call Susan at the Macmillan West of Scotland team on 0141 952 0085 or email westscotlandfundraising@macmillan.org.uk
