What a weekend!

rotary winners and santa run 2019

The Rotary Club of West Fife held their annual "Ultimate Quiz" to raise funds for Children in Need. While our team TC Top Cats just missed out on the top spot, we were very proud to have raised the largest amount of money on the night.

Staff enjoyed decorating ginger people made by partner Elaine Cromwell, with entries being judged by Andrew Croxford. The winner was the brilliant Kirsty with her cute fairy. 

A grand total of £400 was raised for Children in Need.

Trainee accountant Anna then topped the weekend off by taking part in the annual Santa Dash, raising an incredible £400 for the MS Society.


Toy Joy for Kids in Need 


This year our Dunfermline team decided to collect toys on behalf of Fife Council's Dunfermline Children and Families Locality Teams based in New City House.

Here's hoping this selection of goodies makes Christmas a wee bit brighter for some local children.

Y Viva Espana! for Fife Kidney Support Group

fundraising for Fife Kidney Support Group

Jack Laird, Tom Russell and Sandra Mitchell hand over a cheque for a whopping £1,562 to our nominated charity Fife Kidney Support Group. All the money we raise for the Group this year is ring-fenced to subsidise a Spanish trip for members of the group who receive dialysis or are transplant recipients. 

The money was raised by an amazing group of Thomson Cooper people who committed to taking part in a gruelling 10 mile Tough Mudder event in June. In the run-up, they all trained hard and raised funds with a cake sale and online giving. The partners also played their part, by donating a significant sum of money.

We're all looking forward to working with Fife Kidney Support Group over the next few months.
