Clydebank and District GC committee member Brendan Dillon tells us about two fantastic club fundraisers in aid of the Hospice
The Hospice runs a packed and popular events calendar throughout the year, providing entertainment for our supporters and raising vital sums to allow us to continue to offer the highest standards of care.
In addition to events organised by the Hospice, we are also very fortunate to benefit from the proceeds of events organised independently by our friends and supporters in the local community and further afield.
One of the top event-based donations we received this year was from Clydebank and District Golf Club.
Through an Am-Am golf day and a speakers’ night, hosted by our Patron Peter Martin, the club raised the wonderful sum of £11,760.
We recently caught up with club committee member Brendan Dillon, who told us a little more about the two events, held on separate days earlier in the year.
Brendan is pictured here with club captain Hugh Gravel and West Dunbartonshire Provost Douglas McAllister, presenting a cheque to our Chief Executive Sister Rita .
Brendan said: “Clydebank and District Golf Club have an affection for the Hospice – we try to do as much as we can.
“Our last three speakers nights have all been in aid of St Margaret of Scotland Hospice. I know Peter Martin well, he hosted the night and runs the whole show.
“Our speakers Bill Copleand and Paul Reid were absolutely excellent.
“There were 36 teams in the Am-Am. It went really well. We ran it in conjunction with the Hospice and Prostate Cancer and split the funds evenly between the two charities.”
