Team story

[p][b]McCreas Fundraising is well underway with our nominated Charity Partner, Action for Children Scotland [/b][/p][p]It has been an extremely busy 2018 in and outside of the office, and we have seen many of our team take part in various fundraising events and ‘challenges’ to raise money for our chosen charity partner, [url=https://www.actionforchildren.org.uk/what-we-do/]Action for Children Scotland[/url]. [/p][p][b]BYTE NIGHT - SLEEPING OUT FOR HOMELESSNESS - WE'VE DONE IT[/b][/p][p]On Friday 5th October, our McCreas Byte Night team: Andrew, Ashleigh, Carley and Emily, slept out in Blythswood Square Gardens to raise awareness and funds for youth homelessness in Scotland and UK wide.

Due to bad weather conditions, much to his disappointment, he could not get airborne - he will try again next year. Douglas will not give up on this one (despite his fear of heights!)
