The entire team at GG Glass are being encouraged to get cosy for charity as part of a Christmas fund raising event in aid of the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.
In an initiative being led by Glasgow Glazing Manager, Bernard Cooper, whose daughter Summer age 11 is affected by cystic fibrosis, staff across the UK are being urged to wear a Christmas jumper to work on Friday 20th December and make a donation to the charity.
The charity www.cysticfibrosis.org.uk works hard to create a brighter future for people with CF and is supporting people affected in the here and now.
Bernard explained: “Cystic fibrosis is something my family deal with on a daily basis as our daughter Summer has this condition, so we understand the commitment from everyone involved to find a cure. Any monies raised goes a long way no matter how small and will be donated to the CF trust.
“The main goal is to one day find the cure but right now they have just passed the new drug in Scotland/England which will help the ones who are able to receive this drug have a better quality of life. Unfortunately as there are several mutations of this illness not all affected will be able to receive this new drug so with the help from the donations the fight continues to one day help all.”
Sam Grant added: “This is a great Christmas initiative for us all to throw our weight behind and to help us all get in the festive spirit. I’m sure many of us want to show our support for Bernard and his family at this important time of the year so please don your finest Christmas jumper and let’s get cosy at Christmas!”
