Gowrie garden party grows funds
A number of Gowrie services worked together to host a “blooming good” garden party in Edinburgh last week.
As part of Hillcrest’s 50th anniversary 50 Grand to Lend a Hand fundraising initiative, team OBS raised nearly £600 at their event.
Paul Welsh, services manager, said: “It was great so see so many people come along to support us and even better to see the sun! We sold cake and candy, vintage clothes and bric a brac to raise an amazing amount of money which will be donated to the Edinburgh Children’s Hospital Charity.
“Thanks to all of the staff and service users for helping out.”
50 Grand to Lend a Hand will run until early October, when Hillcrest staff hope to have collectively raised £50,000 for a number of different charities.
