Craig’s Charity Cookathon around Scotland 

4th June

'The Kilted Chef', Craig Wilson will be attempting a Nationwide Cookathon, cooking in every major city in Scotland, along with a few other locations, in 24 hours! The aim is to raise £60,000 for a new Maggie’s Cancer Caring Centre in Aberdeen and further funds for Breast Cancer Care Scotland, however, Craig must raise a further £4,000 for the helicopter before the day can literally take off! ...HELP!
So far Craig has the support of the First Minister, Alex Salmond (who will accompany Craig for the whole morning), Albert Roux, Lorraine Kelly, Jean-Christophe Novelli, Lady Claire MacDonald and Jacqueline O’Donnell, as well as his loyal customers at Eat on the Green and Cocoa.
Any support and/or donations will be most appreciated. Sponsored advertising opportunities are available, and volunteers are required at each event, for further information contact Eat on the Green on 01651 842337.
