There was also a charity auction, with lots including a four night trip to Spain (donated by Wallace Quinn), a 4-ball golfing experience at Mar Hall (donated by First Scottish), a 4-ball golfing experience at the Carrick (donated by Linear UK) and the weekend hire of a sports car (donated by Lexus UK).    Raffle prizes included vouchers for Glasgow’s ‘the Ivy’ restaurant (donated by Denovo).   Our thanks also to Bellway Homes Scotland (East) for sponsorship of the 15th hole and to Millbank Decorators for making a donation after being unable to enter a team.

Wallace Quinn Managing Director John Quinn says,

“It is always great to be able to enjoy the company of clients and colleagues away from the office and our annual golf day is a highlight of the Wallace Quinn calendar. Wallace Quinn has been supporting St Andrew’s Hospice with fundraising activities since we first opened for business and it an association I know will continue for many years.   The Hospice does a remarkable job of helping individuals and families when they need help the most and it is a real privilege for us to be able to assist in any way we can.”

The money raised will go towards the ‘Capital Appeal’, a nine million pound fundraising drive to reconfigure and refurbish the hospice in Airdrie.

Karen McFadyen, Capital Appeal Director for St Andrew’s Hospice says,

“Significant changes in how hospice care is delivered is a key factor in our major refurbishment programme and will ensure we can continue to provide safe and quality care for the next thirty years.  The equipment and facilities needed to deliver modern hospice care have considerable changed since we opened in 1986 and take up much more space.  Refurbishing the Hospice will allow us to stay in our current home and continue to care for the patients of North and South Lanarkshire and make our Hospice fit for the future. The upgraded building will enable us to increase the number of single bedded rooms than we have at present, which will allow us to ensure privacy for patients and their loved ones.”

Well done to everybody for taking part and, as always, our deepest respect and admiration to all the staff and volunteers at St Andrew’s Hospice for their remarkable work.
