Funds boost for Sick Kids

Have your say

EDINBURGH Sick Kids Friends Foundation (SKFF) raised £12,500 during its annual Christmas fair at Meadowbank Stadium last week.

More than 2000 attended the event, which played host to special guests including Santa and his elves, Spencer from CBeebies programme Balamory, and Nina and the Neurons.

The event was a record breaker in terms of both attendance and funds raised. Donations will go towards improving facilities, equipment and financing research to provide better care and comfort for child patients.

Rachel McKenzie, community fundraising manager for the SKFF, said: “It was very warming to see the amount of people who came and donated to this worthwhile cause.”
