Community Fundraising report Jan-Jun 2014

2 June 2014

Fundraising is a great way to support the Anne Rowling Regenerative Neurology Clinic at the University of Edinburgh.

From once-in-a-lifetime challenges to small informal events there are countless ways to raise money and awareness. Whether you are sporty, creative, entrepreneurial or just up for a challenge, your contribution and commitment can make a real difference. You can set up your own fundraising challenge or take part in an organised event such as a marathon or a sponsored walk.

We would like to pass on our sincere thanks and gratitude to everyone who has taken part in a fundraising activity in aid of the Anne Rowling Clinic and to all their friends and family who supported them. Their achievements have been highlighted below…

On 28 February Kate Cameron proved her mettle when she walked over hot coals in aid of the Anne Rowling Clinic. Kate walked over 6 metres of embers smouldering at 1236 degrees Fahrenheit and in doing so raised £426 for the Clinic.

The University will be hosting its third fundraising firewalk on Friday 6 March 2015; contact for further information.


Sisters Lynda Murray and Pamela Young put on a brilliant evening’s entertainment on 1 March with live band Milestone, a fantastic raffle and delicious buffet. Not only did guests have a great night, but £2,129 was raised in aid of the Clinic.


On 24 May Clare Dooley and colleagues raised £500 in aid of ‘Research into Stroke due to Haemorrhage’ in memory of Frances Gough, Principle Teacher of Additional Support Needs at Castle Douglas Primary School by taking part in the Kirkcudbright Half Marathon.


Hannah Doyle’s mum was diagnosed with primary progressive multiple sclerosis in 1997. When Hannah and Leo McHugh tie the knot on 26 July, Hannah’s mum sadly won’t be able to attend due to MS. In support of their mum Hannah and Leo have asked their wedding guests to support the Anne Rowling Clinic on their big day. Congratulations to Hannah, Leo and family for their upcoming celebrations.
