Fundraising assistance

Madrugada, the association which helps people with life-limiting illness, has brought in the help of professional fundraiser Hazel McGill to assess and coordinate fundraising efforts by the association.

Hazel McGill, who has more than 30 years of experience in raising money for hospices in the UK, told the Algarve Resident: “I heard about Madrugada in the UK and although I have officially retired from my role as an advisor, I offered my services to Alison to help plan targets over a three-year period.”

She added: “The most important aspect for any association such as this is volunteers and without them Madrugada could not exist so we need to concentrate on mobilising more volunteers and also to look for more premises for shops to help increase funds.”
