Fundraiser in memory of Graham McKie.

Family and friends of well loved Milngavie man Graham McKie were at Dobbies Garden Centre in Bearsden last week to collect money for The Brain Tumour Charity in his memory.

Graham sadly passed away due to a brain tumour aged just 32.

His mum and dad Rachel and Donald are pictured here with his sisters Sharyn and Jaclyn and other family and friends and Rachael Faulds Community Champion at Dobbie’s. They released balloons at 4.15pm on Thursday, August 11 to mark the anniversary of his death.

Rachel said: “We are feeling very blessed by the amazingly positive response from so many customers of Dobbies, Bearsden since last Monday.

“We have also been deeply moved by the 50 or so families who have shared the loss of their loved ones freely with us from this dreadful disease.

“Some husbands, wives, dads, mums, brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews, some dealing with brain tumours themselves, and many like us, their ‘child’!

“It has been very humbling for us as Graham’s family to hear people thanking us for doing this as it has helped them not feel they are on their own and their is help out there.”
