If Only raises £4,500 for Morocco charity

If Only has raised more than £4,500 for a charity helping rebuild homes after last week’s earthquake in Morocco.

The operator held a fundraising day at its Glasgow head office, consisting of a silent auction, where employees could win extra annual leave days, luxury hampers and hotel stays, as well as a bake sale and a raffle.

If Only also raised money for Scottish charity Refugeewee which supports asylum seekers.

In total, the operator raised £5,802 to be donated to the two charities.

General manager Gordon McCreadie said: “We are delighted to announce that, through the extraordinary generosity of our partners and our amazing staff, we have raised a total of £4,656 for our chosen Morocco charity, Education for All, which is rebuilding boarding schools and houses in the devastated Atlas region of Morocco.

“Our Glasgow-based team raised a further £1,146 for our dedicated charity Refugeewee, a local charity which supports refugees and asylum seekers in Glasgow with all money raised being matched by Portman Travel Group.

“Thank you to everyone who played a part in this event. We hope that this donation will provide some support for those impacted. Our hearts go out to the people devastated by the earthquake and for our charities which are close to our hearts.

“I want to express my thanks for the team who have pulled together. We are so grateful for everybody’s contribution.”
