Pica Disorder Awareness – Fundraising Night
Published: March 24, 2016
One of the people we work for, Alex & his support team held a highly successful Fundraising ‘Race Night’ & Disco at Maryhill Football Club on Thursday 24th of March to raise money for greater awareness of a rare eating disorder called Pica.
Pica is the persistent craving to eat substances such as dirt or paint that have no nutritional value. Alex has this condition and is supported to manage it.
Janine from Alex’s team took the lead with organising the race night with the help of her fiancé Steven and his brother David. Janine would also like to thank Ann, Karen, Jane & Liam for all their help and support.
An amazing £500 was raised! Huge well done all!
The money raised will go towards further awareness raising of Pica.

Presentations were delivered from Sandy’s Tours, Maggie’s To Go catering business, Shaun’s Cycle Gateway, Darren’s Vlogging, Liza Iris photography as well as The Ambassadors of Choice research project.
We would like to give out a huge thank you to our Dragon’s (Judges). The advice, assistance and feedback from the judges was very well received and the offers of help very welcome. Our Dragon’s were Claire Garden – Communication and Events Specialist at Enquest, Martin Kasprowicz – Head of Adult Services for Learning Disabilities at Aberdeen City Council and Jordan Rowson – Business Development Manager at Cammach Recruitment.
One of the highlights of the day was the impact and the impressions the people we work for made on everyone; their personalities, gifts and skills shone through.
