Charity Rally Fundraising!

We have had a busy couple of weeks at MacKing HQ, not least because of our 2nd hand mac business, but also because we are taking a lot of our own time to raise as much money as we can for the MND Association. Motor Neurone Disease is a little funded and little understood condition which holds a place very close to our MD Alex's heart.

On Saturday 13th August, we were in the middle of the Eden Centre, High Wycombe with our rally car Lancia (which we will be attempting to drive to Prague next Thursday 25th...) selling raffle tickets and taking donations!

The very kind people of Starbucks High Wycombe kept us fuelled and raring to go all day! 

We are proud to say that we raised £606.57 in just 6 hours of fundraising in High Wycombe alone!

The next day we headed to Broad Street in Reading, where we had a pitch just outside the Oracle Shopping Centre!

We are thrilled to say that thanks to the amazing generosity of the people of Reading, we raised £666.29, again in just 6 hours of collection time! That makes a total of £1,272.86 in just two days.

We still have our charity quiz night on Thursday the 18th August at the Waggon+Horses Pub, Pinkneys Rd, Maidenhead at 1930PM and a fundraising day in Maidenhead Town Centre (just outside Natwest) on Friday from 12PM!

Alex, our MD and Calum, another of our directors were also interviewed live on BBC Radio Oxford 95.2FM on Monday 15th August. You can listen to their interview here (roughly 1hr10minutes in).

We are being interviewed on BBC Radio Berkshire at 3PM on Thursday 18th, so we have a busy week ahead! Wish us luck!

Alex
