Scottish rally driver and Watermans road safety ambassador John MacCrone raised £1,600 for TCCL – Tayside Children with Cancer & Leukaemia – following his appearance on the recent McRae Rally Challenge at Knockhill.
The 25-year old from Mull was able to put on a great show for the Knockhill fans in his Ford Fiesta R5, raising awareness and £1,000 for the charity that raises money to help the families of Tayside, Angus, North East Fife and Perthshire affected by childhood cancer or leukaemia at the same time. MacCrone also raised an additional £600 via his own TCCL fundraising page: https://mydonate.bt.com/fundraisers/johnmaccrone1.
MacCrone was delighted to present a cheque to Hazel Melrose, the Secretary of TCCL, at the Colin M Smith electrical showroom in Forfar.
The money raised will go towards the purchase of TV and video equipment for the TCCL Lodge at St Andrews, which is a holiday home for children with cancer. More information on this amazing project is available on its website: www.tccl-lodge.org.uk.
John Walker, TCCL Chairperson said: “We are delighted that John has chosen to support TCCL. His contribution will go a long way to assisting us with the completion of TCCL Lodge. We hope our first families will be coming to stay this autumn.”
John MacCrone said: “It’s a real honour to be able to help such a worthy cause like the TCCL and the TCCL Lodge appeal. I’m delighted to have raised so much during our outing on the recent McRae Rally Challenge at Knockhill, and I would like to thank Watermans and all our team partners for their generosity. Hopefully, we can continue to work together in rallying to raise awareness and more money for TCCL.”
