Glasgow Street Aid Receives a £4,000 boost from Mac Mic Foundation

Glasgow Street Aid, a Scottish charity providing medical and welfare assistance on the streets of Glasgow’s city centre, has been given a significant financial boost in the form of a £4,000 donation from Mac Mic Foundation.

Established in 2020, Glasgow Street Aid has already treated its 4,000th patient and operates as a pre-hospital medical and welfare charity, alleviating the burden on both the ambulance service and A&E departments by providing on-site care within Glasgow’s city centre. The donation will enable the charity to continue providing its essential services to the people of Glasgow.

Becky Blair, Area Service Manager for Glasgow Street Aid, expressed her gratitude, said:

"We cannot thank Mac Mic Group enough for the incredible donation from its Mac Mic Foundation! To be contacted by them out of the blue was the nicest surprise and to be supported by a big company like them is such a privilege.

“We are just a small Glasgow-based charity of volunteers who are doing what we can to provide medical and welfare assistance to those in need in Glasgow city centre each weekend, so every single donation helps us keep doing this. Thank you so much for this amazing and much needed donation.”

Ross Mickel, director of Mac Mic Group, said:

“We have a long and proud history of supporting charities and communities across the UK. We are committed to making a positive impact, and we have been doing so for nearly a century.

"Through our Mac Mic Foundation, we are dedicated to supporting organisations like Glasgow Street Aid and other initiatives that enhance people’s lives. The team of volunteers at Glasgow Street Aid provides an invaluable service to the city’s residents.

“The Mac Mic Foundation panel was deeply impressed by the passion, drive, and dedication that the team at Glasgow Street Aid demonstrates in carrying out their work. We were compelled to get involved in supporting their efforts.”
