Maximillion launches Burma appeal event

Edinburgh-based agency Maximillion is to run an It’s A Knockout-style fundraiser in the city in aid of the Burmese cyclone victims. Taking place on 10 June at Kirknewton Stables, the event runs from 6.30pm until 9pm and Maximillion is inviting events industry colleagues to enter teams of four or eight to take part. “My brother Paul has been involved in Burma for some 25 years and operating cruises on the Irrawaddy River for 18,” said Maximillion managing director John Strachan. “Since the cyclone hit he launched the Pandaw Appeal which aims to deliver aid and relief through his boats. He has donated two boats, one each to the only two charities permitted to operate in the disaster region – Merlin and Save the Children. The boats have been converted into hospitals and are now treating victims and saving lives. Paul is now concentrating his efforts on hiring and loading trucks from up country and moving aid directly into the region.” Further details of the appeal can be found www.pandaw.com. All monies made from the Maximillion event are going to the appeal, with all operational costs absorbed by the agency or through donations by staff and suppliers. Those interested should email maximillion@news.maximillion.co.uk by Friday 30 May to register.
