MADi Fundraising, a special charity fund set up by window and door industry people, has been chosen as the principal charity for the FIT Show 2014.
,Among other activities, FIT has donated a special stand to the charity to raise awareness among visitors, and the show’s gala dinner will host a fundraising casino sponsored by Solidor.
,MADi was launched by three Hope 66 riders – Solidor Group MD, Gareth Mobley, Window Widgets owner, Dan Gill and Universal Arches MD, Leon Day – after Dan’s youngest daughter, Maddie, was diagnosed with bone marrow failure shortly after they returned from the charity US cycle marathon.
,Funds raised by MADi at the event will be passed to the Anthony Nolan Trust, which supports bone marrow and stem cell donations for people with blood cancers and similar disorders. In addtion, other fundraising events are already planned for the near future. You can learn more about MADi Fundraising at www.madifundraising.com or Twitter @madifundraising.
,The FIT team have also chosen to back a second charity, Life for Ella-Grace, to help fund surgery for a child with a rare circulation disorder, www.lifeforellagracefund.co.uk.
,FIT Show MD, Paul Godwin, said: “Almost everyone who visits the show will know someone who has been touched by a life-threatening condition at some time, so we know they will all back us in our choice of these very deserving causes.”
