Rio Lunch Charity Donation

Rio Lunch Charity Donation


Following the success of our Rio Lunch on Thursday 29th September 2016, Graham + Sibbald are delighted to be donating all funds raised from our Charity draw held at the event to CCLASP.


Children With Cancer & Leukaemia Advice & Support for Parents (CCLASP), are a wonderful Scottish charity that support in excess of 500 families across the country coping with this awful illness. They aim to raise a smile for every child affected by cancer and leukaemia by helping parents to be supported and informed when dealing with the emotional turmoil their child is facing. CCLASP give parents access to much needed resources and even provide transport to hospital appointments if needed. They receive no government funding and rely solely on events, such as ours in September, in order to help them continue their dedicated work.


Most of the staff at CCLASP have been directly involved with a child or teenager with cancer or leukaemia which allow s them to share a level of understanding which would be otherwise impossible without first-hand experience.


We are thrilled with the money that we raised from our draw, which featured prizes provided to us by Olympic Gold & Silver Medallist, Callum Skinner. Thank you to all our guests and clients that generously donated for this wonderful cause, and thank you to Valerie from CCLASP for coming in to our Edinburgh Office to tell us how our money will be spent and the difference we will be making, especially in the run up to Christmas.
