What We Do For Charity

Charitable causes are extremely important to McCrea as we recognise that we have the opportunity to be able to give something back as well as being able to help raise the profile of our nominated charities - they can also benefit from the generous fundraising efforts of our clients, staff and friends. In recent years we have raised over £700,000 for our nominated charities, and we don't intend to stop now!

We were delighted to announce that our nominated charity partners for the 2024/25 fundraising year are Revive MS Support and the Glasgow Children's Hospital Charity

Our sold-out 14th Annual Charity Golf Day on the 25th April at the Fairmont St Andrews will tee-off our new year of fundraising, which is always a great day out and hopefully helps us to achieve a fast start to the year! 

A yearly tradition, our Managing Director Douglas McCrea will be dragging himself on his Annual Charity Walk this Summer, with this year being the 15th consecutive year of doing so. In 2023 Douglas walked 169km along the Kintyre Way and only managed to get lost for 7km, a new personal record!

In September 2023 we enjoyed a delicious Charity Dinner and Wine-Tasting at Glaschu, which consisted of a three-course meal with matching wines, a brilliant performance by Britain’s Got Talent semi-finalist magician Kevin Quantum, and a Charity Raffle and Auction, all which helped us raise £9,296. We’re planning our 2024 Charity Dinner at the moment, so be sure to get in touch if you are interested in attending! 

Our Annual Charity Race Night will return in early 2025, which is always a great night filled with laughter consisting of a very busy bar, horse racing, a delicious curry and a charity raffle and auction. The lucky winners of our Auction Race in 2024 walked away with £1,875, so be sure not to miss out on next years event! 

Many others in the McCrea team plan to get involved in local challenges and events to support our two new charities over the next twelve months, and we will update regularly on our plans via our website, social media pages, and mailouts.

Supporting Revive MS Support and the Glasgow Children's Hospital Charity

Why we've chosen to support Revive MS Support and The Glasgow Children's Hospital Charity 

We are delighted to be able to support two local charities in Glasgow for our 2024/25 fundraising year. 

Revive MS Support are a local charity in Glasgow who provide nationwide support for people affected by Multiple Sclerosis by helping them manage the physical, emotional, social and financial impacts that come with a diagnosis. Anyone affected by MS can use their services, and can be referred by a health or social care professional or self-refer. The charity are based in Govan and are celebrating their 40th year anniversary in May 2024! McCrea were introduced to Revive MS Support through Partick Thistle midfielder Ben Stanway; find out Ben's link to the charity here

The Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity help to provide the best possible care for young patients at Scotland’s largest children’s hospital by funding life-changing equipment, support services and research. The charity fundraise to ensure that every baby, child and young person treated at Scotland's largest children's hospital receives the extra special care they deserve. Glasgow Warriors and Scotland International centre Stafford McDowall chose the Glasgow Children's Hospital Charity for his Warrior of the Month winner donation from McCrea in November 2023, and was delighted to hear the news that we had chosen the charity as one of our charity partners; find out more here

We are delighted to be able to support these two brilliant causes and look forward to raising as much money and awareness as possible over the coming months!
