A charity golf day which was organised by Korrie Mechanical and Plumbing to mark a year’s anniversary of the passing of the company’s Founder and Managing Director Donnie Fraser, has raised £6,500 for Highland Hospice.
Donnie, who passed away after a short illness, was the founder of Korrie Kauses, the charitable arm of the company, through which he was deeply committed to Highland Hospice. Organised by the company’s Commercial Director Warren MacDonald, the Donnie Fraser Memorial Trophy was held at Castle Stuart on Wednesday 20th September. Eighteen teams participated, comprising Korrie’s staff, suppliers and customers.
Highland Hospice Corporate Fundraiser Lisa Long said, “We are so grateful to Warren and all at Korrie for raising this fantastic total through entry fees and a raffle. This will cover an entire day’s care here at the Hospice, through our Pay for a Day programme, on 18th September 2018.
Warren said, “I would like to thank all the teams who came along on the day to show their support together with all those who donated prizes towards the charity raffle. I’d also like to thank Jeremy and the team at Castle Stuart for their help and support on the day and the donation from their Par 3 days.”
“Donnie always enjoyed playing at Castle Stuart and it was great that so many friends and colleagues could come together and remember him in this way. The day raised a fantastic amount which can cover the cost of a day’s care at the Highland Hospice, a charity which meant so much to him.”
