Watch Manager Craig McFie is an avid fundraiser for the Family Support Trust, participating each year in Scotland’s various Kiltwalks and raising vital funds for the charity.
He was inspired, initially, to get involved with the Family Support Trust after his son Logan, seven, spent time in Glasgow’s Yorkhill Hospital as a baby after being diagnosed with a bowel condition.
Craig said: “When Logan was born he spent the first nine weeks of his life in Yorkhill. He had Hirschsprung’s disease, which meant the bottom part of his bowel didn’t work properly.
He needed keyhole surgery, but thankfully it’s all sorted now and Logan is healthy and happy.
The Family Support Trust do great work and are there for everyone in the organisation when they are needed.
Taking part in Kiltwalks and raising funds and awareness gives you a sense that you are doing something good and you are giving something back.”
