The weekend of the 16th September saw the firm participate in two hugely successful fundraising events to raise money for The Yard.
On the Friday evening, Turcan Connell hosted a five-a-side hockey tournament at Goldenacre playing fields, consisting of fourteen teams from firms and business across Scotland, and two (mighty) home teams. The event took the format of a round robin tournament, followed by a BBQ, bake sale, drinks reception, raffle and silent auction. The night was a great success, with one of our home teams reaching the semi – finals, narrowly being pipped at the post by the well deserved tournament winners, Aberdeen Asset management. A huge thanks to everyone who participated - whether by playing hockey, volunteering, buying raffle tickets, or spectating - thanks to your efforts, an incredible £4,817.39 was raised.
The firm’s fundraising efforts continued, and on the Sunday, Alix Francis, Sarah Jackson, Debbie McIlwraith, Katy Gillies, Any Ross and Scott Hunter took on the colossal 26 mile walk, as part of the Edinburgh Kiltwalk. The team strolled past their initial target of £1,000 and raised an amazing £2,583.70 to date.
