Team story

[p]McCreas Fundraising is underway for 2019 with our nominated Charity Partner, British Heart Foundation in Scotland [/p][p]2018 proved to be a very busy and successful year for fundraising with a range of initiatives and challenges both in and outside of the office including the successful completion of the London Marathon, Roy Roy Way, the Three Peaks Challenge and a sleep out overnight in October in Glasgow![/p][p]This year, as well as our events including our race night, golf day and annual dinner we are eyeing up participation in not one but two distance walks as well as Iron Man Wales (where just the running element of the challenge is a full marathon)![/p][p]Douglas McCrea will this year be taking on the Cowal Way and then over to Arran to walk the Arran coastal route at the beginning of June which will mean a combined total of 188 KM. Because of other time constraints around work and family of course, he will be attempting to do this in just 9 days. Training is underway but it's a colossal feat and every penny pledged will help him along the way! [/p][p]Why we've chosen British Heart Foundation in Scotland this year: [/p][p]British Heart Foundation’s research might start with the heart, but doesn't stop there. Their research is unlocking the connections between heart and circulatory diseases and their risk factors. [/p][p]There are 670,000 people living with heart and circulatory disease in Scotland. That’s more than double the number living with cancer and dementia combined. It costs the NHS over £800 million a year.[/p][p]This month in Scotland, 2,100 people will go to hospital because of a heart attack, of whom nearly a quarter will sadly die; 25 babies will be born with congenital heart defects.[/p][p]In total, 1,250 people will lose their lives to Cardio Vascular Disease in Scotland, of whom 380 will be under the age of 75. [/p][p]At the Glasgow Centre of Research Excellence, Professor Rhian Touyz and her team are hoping to come up with ways to prevent heart attacks using innovative research approaches.[/p][p]Our support will help Glasgow scientists to investigate blood vessel damage caused by chronic conditions like obesity and diabetes, root causes of heart and circulatory diseases. Researchers are using cutting-edge technology to study blood vessel damage, and find ways to repair or treat them.[/p][p]About McCreas:[/p][p]McCrea Financial Services have been providing professional financial planning advice and assistance to individuals, businesses and charities since they were formed in 1999 by Managing Director, Douglas McCrea. [/p][p]Based in Glasgow, but serving the whole of the UK, as well as clients abroad, McCreas pride themselves on a professional and friendly service. [/p][p]As part of a commitment to the city where it all started, McCreas are sponsors of Partick Thistle and Glasgow Warriors, and work very hard to provide charitable support with almost half a million pounds now donated to our nominated charities over the years.
