Charity and Sponsorship

Our permanent charity partner is Pancreatic Cancer Action Scotland.

Pancreatic cancer has the lowest 5-year survival rate of the 22 most common cancers, largely due to late diagnosis. Our aim has always been to raise as much awareness of, and proceeds for, Pancreatic Cancer Action Scotland, as possible.

We host a bi-annual summer ball for PCAS. Our first two, in 2017 and 2019, in aid of the charity, at the Radisson Blu in Glasgow, raised over £56,000 and £82,000 respectively, assisted by compere, Des Clarke and auctioneer Tam Cowan. We look forward to our next summer ball in 2023.

On Saturday 9 November 2019 we hosted our first “Purple Thistle Day” at our sponsored club, Partick Thistle FC’s home game versus Greenock Morton FC, with over 60 friends, family and associates of both Just Employment Law and Pancreatic Cancer Scotland attending hospitality for the day with a purple theme throughout – supported by the Club’s players, management, backroom staff and the Club’s mascot, Kingsley!

We took the decision to permanently partner with Pancreatic Cancer Action Scotland from 2020 onwards as they work towards making the 2020’s the decade of change for pancreatic cancer.

In 2020, with the global pandemic forcing us into lockdown on more than one occasion, it was clear that the charity required even more support to raise funds and awareness of pancreatic cancer.  With the support of our sponsored team Partick Thistle FC, we organised a second Purple Thistle Day which, although sadly could not be attended by us or our guests, helped to raise awareness of the condition. We also hosted an online auction in November 2020, ending on World Pancreatic Cancer Day, where we auctioned off some 200 plus prizes. By doing so, we raised a further £31,500 for the charity.

Our team also participated in the annual Kiltwalk for PCAS in 2020 helping to raise further funds for the charity.

A proud moment for us was the launch of the new special edition goalkeeper kit from Partick Thistle, who we are the principal sponsor for during their 2021/22 campaign. The eye-catching purple goalkeeper kit will carry the logo of Pancreatic Cancer Action Scotland, and will be worn by the Jags’ goalkeepers throughout the season.

In 2021 we were able to return to Firhill in person for our third Purple Thistle Day, on 30 October 2021, at Thistle’s game against Inverness Caledonian Thistle. The day was held to raise awareness and further funds, with Thistle’s players wearing purple t-shirts, mascots bedecked in the charity’s purple colours and supporters of the charity attending the game for a day of entertainment

During Pancreatic Cancer awareness month in 2021 we raised £73,000 for the charity from an online auction, which ended on 18 November 2021 (World Pancreatic Cancer Day).

We are very proud that our total raised for Pancreatic Cancer Action Scotland to date now stands at over £250,000.  We will not sit back however, as we aim to build on this and the work undertaken thus far in helping raise awareness of this very worthy cause and look forward to substantially adding to this fundraising total in years to come.
