Shopping through Give as you Live for Epilepsy Scotland… Giving just got a whole lot easier!

Job title: Administrator
Location: Glasgow
Bio: Administrator at national epilepsy charity and proud auntie to my 3 gorgeous nephews, with another one on the way! I love spending time with my family and friends, cooking, photography and travelling with my boyfriend Paul.

My Give as you Live experience:
One of my colleagues is soon to be moving onto pastures new, so along with the rest of the team I got my thinking cap on to come up with an idea for a great gift. Eventually we thought of putting together a collection of photo’s and quotes into a personalised diary. We thought the diary would be useful for her new role but we’ve used photos taken at both work fundraising and social events to remind her of her time at Epilepsy Scotland.

There were a number of sites that we could have used to make the diary but as photo box appeared in my Give as you Live search box I knew immediately that it would be the best site to use. The colleague who is leaving is a fundraiser so would hate to miss such an easy way to raise funds!

The photo diary went down a storm, she loved it! Not only did we find a great gift, we raised important funds for Epilepsy Scotland. Using Give as you Live was so easy to use, and there wasn’t any additional cost for the donation, the funds raised were courtesy of photo box.
