A team of accountancy staff has raised almost £30,000 for Maggie’s Centres this year, with the latest effort being a celebratory charity ball.
About 170 guests attended EQ Chartered Accountants’ first charity ball at the Apex City Quay Hotel and Spa.
With a silent auction, raffle and various games, guests raised a total of £16,000 on the night alone which, combined with a host of other activities and events held so far this year, brings the current total to £29,000.
Since the start of the year, staff from EQ’s four offices – in Dundee, Forfar, Cupar and Glenrothes – have held bake sales, race nights and pub quizzes and taken part in a skydive and a number of gruelling fitness challenges.
Annie Long, fundraising manager at Maggie’s Dundee, said: “We are absolutely delighted by EQ’s contribution to Maggie’s Centres and so touched by their achievements throughout the year.
“These funds will help ensure our centres continue to function and make an impact on each person who walks through our doors.”
