EQ Accountants launches 2018 fundraising drive for Maggie’s Centres
Dundee-based accountancy firm EQ Accountants has kicked off its annual fundraising campaign in aid of its charity of the year, Maggie’s Centres.
EQ Chartered Accountants launched its 2018 calendar of fundraising activities on Valentine’s Day with bake sales held across its offices throughout Angus, Fife and Tayside.
In Dundee, staff also enjoyed meeting one of Maggie’s mini penguins, who made an exclusive, one-day appearance as part of EQ’s sponsorship of the Maggie’s Penguin Parade.
Staff were treated to an impressive array of home-baking with their morning cuppa, with around £400 in donations being ploughed into the deserving cancer caring charity.
The bake sales are the first events in a year-long programme of activities and initiatives led by 25 of the firm’s fundraising champions, across their offices in Dundee, Glenrothes, Forfar and Cupar.
For three months during the Summer, the streets of Dundee and the surrounding region will be home to a trail of individually designed and beautifully decorated giant penguin sculptures showcasing the wealth of artistic talent in the area, creating economic and cultural benefits for Dundee.
The project is led by Maggie’s Centre Dundee, in partnership with Wild in Art, and will raise significant funds to support Maggie’s vital work caring for local people affected by cancer.
The EQ penguin will be designed by Ulrika Kjeldsen.
