North Ayrshire Staff Association (NASA) has pulled out all the stops to bring some fun and cheer to members again this year.

NASA is back for 2024 and the action starts now, but before we tell you all about this year’s busy schedule, we wanted to share the good news that North Ayrshire Staff Association are pleased to announce that they have been able to donate £4,500 to local charities since the festive period.

Mark Wilson, NASA Chairperson said: “Thank you to everyone who has booked tickets for NASA events over the past year and taken part in our raffles – especially on the run-up to Christmas 2023.

“Thanks to you, we were able to raise an incredible £1,753 from our Christmas Charity Raffle, which the NASA Committee then matched and topped up to £3,600.

“It is brilliant that thanks to our generous staff, we have been able to give our local chosen charities – ones that are really important to us – a much needed boost.

“Now that 2024 is in full swing, tickets are on sale for the upcoming schedule of North Ayrshire Staff Association events.

“Read our round-up below for everything you need to know… but, remember, tickets sell fast so don’t leave booking too late to avoid disappointment!”
