Fundraising couple’s Munch Brunch raises £1486

Kirkintilloch couple George and Dorothy Crooks held another successful Munch Brunch Coffee Morning in aid of the Brain Tumour Charity David Philip Crooks Fund, in memory of their son David.


The annual event, held in St David’s Church, was packed out and visitors enjoyed lunch and delicious home baking.


MSP Rona Mackay opened the event and presented George and Dorothy with a framed Parliamentary motion she submitted to congratulate the couple on their amazing fundraising efforts.


To date, the couple have raised £49,514 and are determined to reach their goal of £50,000 by the end of the year.


Ms Mackay said: “George and Dorothy are an amazing couple and their family must be very proud of them. They are raising this money in memory of their beloved son David and it will help fund research to beat this terrible disease. I congratulate them and wish them well in reaching their target.”


George said: “Thank you to all who attended and helped us to raise this terrific sum. We have enjoyed great support from the community and all our family and friends.”

Donations can be made online to the Brain Tumour Charity.
