Pinal’s Curry Night
Along with her colleagues from Dunbartonshire Council, Pinar Patel raised £3,000 for the Pebble Appeal. Pinal was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2008 and had been undergoing treatment at the Beatson. They organised a coffee evening and invited friends, family and colleagues.
The Clober Golf Club in Milngavie held a charity golf match in aid of local charity Cure Cancer Scotland. Cure Cancer Scotland were raising money for the Beatson Pebble Appeal and hope to reach £10,000 very soon! On the day, the Cure Cancer Shield was won by David Steele, a member of Clober Golf Club. The match was followed by an evening disco, short auction and raffle and over £2,000 was raised. Kay McFarlane, chairperson of Cure Cancer Scotland, thanked the club, players and everyone involved in supporting the event and making it such a success.
Ignis Asset Management 10K
Over 120 ladies ran in support of the Appeal in the 2009 Ignis Asset Management 10K generating a total of more than £12,000. Oweny’s Entourage entered a team of over 80 runners who raised more than £10,000 for the appeal.
Charity Old Firm Match
Graeme Brunton and Gordon Scott from the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) organised a charity ‘Old Firm’ football match at Lesser Hampden. A total of £1152 was raised for the Appeal with ‘Rangers’ winning on the day! Graeme said “we all know someone affected by cancer so this is such a great cause”.
Doing us a favour
Many thanks to Katrina and John Taylor who decided to forego the traditional favours at their recent wedding and instead gave all their guests a Beatson Pebble Appeal badge and made a donation to the appeal.
