FIFE Housing Group colleagues have raised nearly £4,000 – and unveiled a special bench – in memory of a colleague who died earlier this year.

The Dunfermline-based team had chosen Maggie's as their Charity of the Year in honour of their much-loved colleague Callum who was battling cancer at the time.

They continued to do after his death in February.

Activities the took part in included a firewalk, an abseil from the Falkirk Wheel, a 250km cycle challenge, a bake sale and the Loch Ness Marathon.

They handed over the money to the charity this week when Callum's bench, featuring his favourite quotes and lyrics, was officially dedicated in his memory.

Nicki Donaldson, Chief Executive Officer of Fife Housing Group, said: “We were delighted to be able to raise money for Maggie’s this year, especially with one of our own going through their own cancer journey.

"It’s an organisation that touches a lot of people’s lives and we were so proud to support Maggie’s at such a poignant time.

"Finishing our year of fundraising with a cheque presentation and unveiling of Callum’s bench was an important end to an emotional time for all of us.

"We are grateful for the work that Maggie’s do and I know colleagues will continue to support them in the future.”
