“The experience in dealing with the Mackman Group has been inspiring. They not only elicited an understanding of what our requirement was, but through their experience of website development and marketing, they have developed a website that we are really proud of.
The site not only looks great but through their training and support we are able to easily make any changes to the site as the charity develops.”Steve Tosh – Trustee, The Smile of Arran
The Smile of Arran Trust provides support for families living through the experience of looking after a child, or young adult, suffering from a brain tumour or brain cancer. With support from charity groups such as Headsmart and CLIC Sargent, as well as donations from individuals and fundraising events, The Smile of Arran Trust offers the opportunity to apply for a grant in order to better support these children and young adults.
The Trust is named in honour of Arran Tosh, the son of the founders and trustees, who died aged 13 shortly after being diagnosed with a brain tumour.
In order to increase the profile of The Trust, and therefore be able to lend more support to families in a similar situation, the team at Mackman donated their skills to The Smile of Arran in order to deliver a responsive website.
The Trust wanted a website that would serve as both a memorial to Arran, and his fundraising for Cancer Research, as well as highlighting some of the issues around brain tumours and give the opportunity to apply for grants and information for individuals wishing to donate to the cause.
It was therefore important that the website featured:
