Castlemilk man’s charity efforts recognised
A Castlemilk man working at the ScotRail Alliance has been recognised for his fundraising efforts.
Stevie Graham took part in an annual sponsored 5km walk while dressed in a pink wig and tutu as part of Cancer Research UK’s ‘Walk All Over Cancer’ campaign.
However, this year’s event took on a special significance for Steven, after his sister-in-law passed away from cancer aged just 40. Keen to prevent more families going through the same heartbreak, the Corkerhill depot shift manager raised £280 for the cause.
His total received a £250 boost, after he successfully applied for funding through the ScotRail Alliance’s employee charitable giving fund – bringing his overall funds raised to £530.
This year over £6,000 has been donated by the ScotRail Alliance to charities nominated by staff. This is in addition to the £33,000 raised for the business’ charity partner, MND Scotland.
Stevie said: “I’m delighted to have raised so much, and it’s great that my employer have almost doubled my fundraising total.
“Cancer is an awful disease, and I want to do what I can to end the suffering that it brings.”
