TRUMP Turnberry in Ayrshire has been announced as the organisation with the highest annual fundraising total for Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity for a third consecutive year, raising over £59,970.

The sum, raised throughout 2019, is the result of Turnberry’s calendar of fundraising activities.

These include the resort’s annual Ladies Lunch and St. Andrew’s Day events, as well as various activities such as bake sales and quiz nights.

Ralph Porciani, general manager at Trump Turnberry, said: “We are proud supporters of Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity and the incredible work they do to support young patients and their families across Scotland.

“Thanks to the tremendous effort of our entire staff, the wonderful generosity of our guests and our exciting events programme, we were once again able to raise an incredible amount of money for the charity. Heading into 2020, the team will again be busy organising events with proceeds going to this important cause.”

The donations will go towards care at Glasgow’s Royal Hospital for Children, as well as support the charity’s new fund, Crosshouse Children’s Fund.

The fund was launched last year to support children of Ayrshire & Arran at the children’s wards, maternity unit and neonatal unit located at Crosshouse.

Kirsten Sinclair, chief operating officer at Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity, said: “The annual fundraising initiatives held by the team at Turnberry have been hugely important in helping us to ensure that children from across Scotland receive the extra special care they deserve while in hospital.

“The generosity of the hotel’s staff and patrons has and will continue to have a remarkable impact on the lives of our young patients and their families, so we’d like to thank everyone at Turnberry for their continued support.”
