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

Celebrating our 25th birthday in May 2024, McCrea have set the very ambitious goal of raising £25,000 for each Charity Partner this year, meaning a total fundraising target of £50,000!

Our sold-out 14th Annual Charity Golf Day on the 25th April at the Fairmont St Andrews teed-off our new year of fundraising, which raised just over £8,100! Congratulations to team Fairway to Heaven who finished in first place and took home our winners trophies, as well as a fourball to the prestigious Royal Dornoch Golf Club!

McCrea adviser Jonathan Campbell undertook the 53-mile Highland Fling Ultra Marathon on Saturday 27th April, which saw him run through Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park to raise funds for our charity partners. Jonathan finished the race with a time of 11 hours, 28 minutes and 57 seconds, raising over £4,000 in the process; a monumental effort by Jonathan!

On the subject of marathons, Head of Marketing Ross McCrea completed his own unique ‘Golf 25 Marathon’ Charity Challenge on Tuesday 28th May, where he played a hole of golf at 25 different courses in and around St Andrews – the Home of Golf – in one day.

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!
