Mount Vernon Golf Club
Congratulations & a big thank you to our Mount Vernon members, Liberton members & to all who have contributed over the last 14 years to help us raise the fantastic total of £101.000 for the Marie Curie Hospice, Edinburgh.
It all started in 2005 when 3 Mount Vernon members, Colin & John McCallum & Andy O’Donnell walked the West Highland Way to raise much needed funds for the Marie Curie Hospice, Edinburgh.
The following year a committee was formed made up of Bob Holdstock, Colin McCallum, Billy McLean & Hugh Roarty who all sadly had lost family members to Cancer & were greatly served by the care afforded by the Marie Curie Hospice. The 4 Organised highly successful Sportsman’s Breakfasts for the next 10 years raising funds & around 2014 we added a Golf Day to our fundraising and a new committee member in Jimmy Gardner to add his expertise.
Back when we started our fund raising we never dreamt we would ever reach the fantastic milestone figure of £100,000 & here we are having surpassed that figure.
The Marie Curie Hospice,Edinburgh requires a further £6,175 in donations a day on top of money it receives from the NHS to operate daily. Last year we sponsored Christmas day at the Hospice & are sponsoring 1st January this coming year.
Once again a big thank you for all your support over the years.
