Golf event helps Glasgow firm raise thousands for charities

GLASGOW-based construction firm City Building and their supply chain partners have donated £18,000 to specialist charities across Scotland after organising a corporate golf day.

The company raised funds for Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Scotland (SBH Scotland) and Cash For Kids. 80 people took part in the event, which was held at Sandyhills Golf Club. All teams were from organisations in City Building’s supply chain.

£10,000 was donated to SBH Scotland, a charity providing personalised care to more than 3,500 children, young people and their families, who are affected by spina bifida and/or hydrocephalus. The cash will be used to fund crucial services, such as home and hospital support, children’s play schemes, and health and wellness clinics.

A further £8,000 has been gifted to Cash For Kids, an organisation helping disadvantaged children in the west of Scotland, which City Building has supported for the past three years.

Dr Graham Paterson, executive director at City Building said, “I would like to thank our suppliers for joining us at the event, and for their efforts which helped us raise an incredible £18,000 for two fantastic organisations.”

Richard Donald, assistant director of fundraising at SBH Scotland said, “We are very grateful to City Building for choosing SBH Scotland as one of its charity partners for the year. It is only through the efforts of businesses and individuals alike that we can continue offering personalised care and support to the thousands of people in Scotland who depend on us.”
