Hugh Brown's climbing efforts raise a whopping £2,250 for the Beatson

27th Oct 2014

Please join us in saying a HUGE thank you and well done to our lovely friends at Newarthill Bowling Club. The club’s members have been extremely busy recently, raising vital funds for Beatson Cancer Charity. A wonderful afternoon tea was organised and hosted on 17th August which was so well supported by members and their families. One of the club’s members, Hugh Brown, also completed a sponsored climb of Blencathra in the Lake District back in June! We received a cheque for a whopping £2,250 raised from these events and from funds collected at the club in one of our bright yellow collecting cans. Stephanie McMurray, one of the Therapy Radiographers at the Beatson, was delighted to be presented with the cheque on 4th October – the seasonal closing date for the club. Fred Carroll was honoured to hand over the cheque to his niece, Stephanie, and we would like to extend our sincere thanks to everyone involved in raising such a fantastic amount. (10 photos)
