Charity Golf Event Hosted by eserv Raises Over £2000 for PSPA

Angus Lee, our Finance Director, organised the event which took place on Friday 7th June at Kemnay Golf Club to raise money for PSPA (Progressive Supranuclear Palsy Association).

Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP) is a neurological condition caused by the premature loss of nerve cells in certain parts of the brain and the cause is unknown. There are around 10,000 people in the UK suffering from PSP and unfortunately at the moment there is no cure.

Angus was inspired to raise money for PSPA for a close friend’s husband, who is currently suffering with the condition. PSPA relies on voluntary funding and donations to aid research and support.

Angus’s comments:

“I certainly did not know anything about PSP until I read about it. PSPA relies on voluntary funding, so I said to my friend that I would raise money for this great cause by hosting a charity golf event in the North East.
The support I got was great from Companies including Eserve, Individuals (including my helpers John, Alison and Graeme on the day) and Golf Clubs who have all donated either money or prizes which showed so much generosity in the North East as we have raised over £2000 for the charity.
We had 18 teams enter and we had a Nearest to Pin competition at the 10th Hole with refreshments at the halfway house in the 10th tee.
We finished off with a BBQ before the prize giving. The highlight for me was Isobel and her husband Richard (see photo) coming to Kemnay GC in the evening to give us an insight to PSP and how they have been coping and dealing with it".
