We are most grateful to receive via a colleague at Garrowhill Bowling Club Roddy Thomson a cheque for £1000.
This all came about :-
Jonny Scott takes up the story
I was in Roddy’s company at the bowling club on closing day last year and I mentioned I was running the half marathon for Leuchie House (where my best friends mother who died recently Margaret Abbott spent some respite time there. She had suffered with MS since 1982) the following day. Roddy’s work
‘VP PLC’ had recently launched an initiative among its 800 employees challenging them to raise £30,000 for a common charity pot and if successful, the company vowed to match it and contribute another £30,000. Each member of staff was then asked to nominate a charity of their choice to have a chance of being selected at random for a £1000 stake……….so Ronnie nominated Leuchie House as his chosen charity and as it turns out Ronnie was one of the names pulled out of the hat!
So far on Margaret’s JustGiving page and with Jonny’s help and many others the fund is now in excess of £7000. Meetings will be taking place soon to start the refurbishment of the upper rooms at Leuchie House.
