Gather’s Charity of the Month
We’ve introduced a new charity initiative at Laggan. From October there will be an option to add £1 to your bill at Gather which will be donated to a local charity or community service. As a business Laggan value giving back and looking after others, which is why we will also contribute a generous donation every month, over and above what has been raised by our customers.
Each month the donations will go to a different local charity or community service.
Our chosen charity we wish to support in October is Ethan’s Journey of Smiles.
Ethan’s Journey of Smiles is a special named fund at the Children’s Cancer and Leukaemia Group raising funds for research into Philadelphia positive acute lymphoblastic leukaemia.
In 2021, nine year old Ethan from Newton Stewart was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia which was Philadelphia positive, a more difficult form of leukaemia to target with the harshest chemotherapy treatment plan needed.
By supporting Ethan’s fundraising efforts, we hope we can contribute to the research needed to develop kinder treatment plans for children like Ethan whilst raising awareness.
