Alan Craig, president of SAMW, presents cheques totalling £5000 to the British Heart Foundation, Crossroads Caring Scotland and the Grampian Cardiac Rehabilitation Association.
An additional £1000 was given by SAMW, in an earlier presentation, to the Arbroath branch of the Royal National Lifeboat Institute.
Funds for the presentations were raised during a charity auction at the Association’s annual conference and dinner in Edinburgh in April 2010.
“We’re delighted to be able to support each of these important
charities,” said Mr Craig. “I also wish to thank our members and
sponsors for their continued generosity in enabling us to maintain this
valuable SAMW tradition.”
British Heart Foundation – £2000. SAMW members selected this fund in
memory of Steve Dickson, Sales Manager for Systems Integration who died
of a heart attack last year. Steve was extremely well known and liked
in the industry and was an enthusiastic supporter of the Association’s
annual conference. He is greatly missed. The cheque was received on
behalf of the Foundation by John Graham, Business Development Manager
of Systems Integration.
Crossroads Caring Scotland – £2000. Crossroads seeks to improve the
quality of life of carers by allowing them to take a much needed break
from their caring duties. The cheque was received by Alison Hardie,
Crossroads’ Fundraising Manager. For more details on Crossroads click here
Grampian Cardiac Rehabilitation Association – £1000. The Association
helps people in the Grampian area with cardiac problems to improve
their quality of life by adopting a healthier lifestyle, the
cornerstone of which is participation in regular safe exercise
programmes. The cheque was received by Douglas Pacitti, Association
Director. For more details on GCRA click here
