Fusion Provida has just completed a year long programme of charity fundraising events to celebrate the Company’s 40th anniversary. Lifeline is one of their chosen charities and I was delighted to accept an invitation from Alison Chaffe to come along to a cheque presentation ceremony on 3 February. At the event I met Alison, Gordon, Cesar, John, Cath and many more who all had stories of the fun they’d had raising money for local charities. Alison described the Duck Race on the river Almond and how she ended up in the water along with the ducks; on the homebaking day all the visiting drivers couldn’t get enough of the cakes and scones they were encouraged to buy; as well as a quiz night, Zumba dancing marathon and a cycle race from west to east through the Borders.
A big thank you to everyone at Fusion Provida for the lavish buffet lunch and their very generous donation.
