Introducing The Smile Of Arran Trust

The Smile of Arran Trust is a brain tumour charity established in memory of Arran Tosh, an extraordinary and inspiring young man who sadly lost his life to a brain tumour at just 13 years old. The 8th June 2024 marked the 10th anniversary of Arran’s passing. The Trust aims to support children and families affected by brain tumours, and has raised over £120,000 since its inception.

How Have Mackman Supported The Smile Of Arran Trust?

The Smile of Arran Trust approached Mackman to create a website that could be used for fundraising & support. This project consisted of website design & development, and ongoing hosting. We proudly donated our services pro-bono, and we are honoured to continue to support this fantastic local charity.

“We were honoured to be asked by Arran’s parents to design and develop a website for the Smile of Arran Trust. They do a fantastic job of raising awareness and continuing Arran’s legacy, and we hope the website plays a key part in their efforts. Donating approximately 10% of our annual turnover to pro-bono projects is our way of supporting the community, and it was a pleasure to contribute to this project.”
