Veterans’ Charity Erskine has the winning hand in bridge competition

Lady members at Kilmacolm Golf Club handed over a donation of £640 to Veterans’ Charity Erskine this week after holding their annual charity bridge event.
The event, first held at the club in 1977, has generated over £21,000 for Erskine since its inception, and this year saw sixty enthusiastic bridge players taking part and enjoying a fun afternoon with tea, cakes and lots of prizes in the charity raffle.
The winning bridge player on the day was club member, Liz Crichton, who was presented with her prize by Lady Captain, Jackie Sayers. 
Jackie said, “Liz was a worthy winner but the real winner is Erskine. The ladies at the club have been committed to fundraising for the charity, and this has been shown over the past 44 years.  In fact, some of the ladies who first playedin 1977, were here again this year. It is such a worthy cause and we feel it is important to support the wonderful care that Erskine provides for our Veterans.”
She continued, “Kilmacolm Golf Club is a really sociable club and our members make a superb effort each year to make this event a success.  In fact throughout the year, we have lots of fun raising money for a variety of charities, in addition to playing host to charity golf days.”
Jim Watret, Erskine Community Fundraiser for the West, said: “It is a fantastic effort and we are delighted that the ladies of Kilmacolm Golf Club chose to donate to Erskine, not just this year, but every year since 1977!We are eternally grateful for their loyal support of our work, raising £21,000 over four decades, to help care for Veterans.”
The donation will help to fund Erskine’s unrivalled support to Veterans in Scotland, through four care homes and a Veterans Village, an Activity Centre, five Assisted Living apartments, 44 Cottages and24 Single Living Apartments which are currently under construction.
