Mount Vernon Golf Club
We at Mount Vernon Golf Club, Edinburgh (club within Liberton Golf Club) find our fundraising adventures very rewarding. Over the last 13 years we have raised over £88,000 for the Hospice here in Edinburgh.
Originally there were the 4 musketeers, Bob Holdstock, Colin McCallum, Billy McLean and myself Hugh Roarty organising our fund raisers. In the last few years we have been joined and ably assisted by Jimmy Gardener who has pushed us on and reinvigorated us to raise even more funds. All 5 of us have lost family to Cancer and were greatly served by the Marie Curie Hospice and knowing that our efforts make a difference makes it so rewarding.
Last year we were taken on a tour of the Hospice to see the great work being carried out by the caring staff who work there. On speaking to one of the nurses one could not help but feel the dedication and care offered by this consummate professional who took great pride in her role as a dedicated Marie Curie nurse.
We are delighted to be paying for Christmas Day this year at the Hospice and wish everyone a happy and peaceful day.
