Lisa's Gift

A huge thankyou to Martin Woods, who organised a fund raising extravaganza at Scotstoun squash complex featuring an exhibition match between former world number one and Commonwealth Games gold medalist James Willstrop and Scottish international Rory Stewart.

The day included clinics for budding squash stars at which expert advice and coaching tips were provided by national coaches as well as James and Rory themselves.
A sizeable turnout on the day also had the opportunity to win raffle prizes donated by Australian no.1 Donna Lobban, Scottish no.1 Lisa Aitken, Scottish men’s no.1 Greg Lobban and from James Willstrop himself.

The day proved to be a huge success, with both young and not quite so young benefitting from valuable coaching advice before settling down to enjoy an epic 5 set encounter between the two squash stars, culminating in a 3-2 victory for the Scottish no.4 by the narrowest of margins (13-11 in the final set!)

All in all, a wonderful day of squash activity which has raised a significant amount of money for two very grateful charities in Lisa’s Gift and the Beatson Cancer Charity.

Once again, heartfelt thanks to Martin and all the people who helped make this such a memorable day for all who attended and, of course, to two very grateful charities !

From all at Lisa’s Gift a HUGE thank you to Kirsty and Jackie for organising Friday Night and getting such spectacular prizes for the raffle which included the 2 tickets to Lewis Capaladi (donated by Mairi and Jackie) and the overnight stay in Scarborough with money towards dinner (donated by Robertson Acom Ltd). A further thanks of course to dj Derek who not only had everyone dancing the night away but also serenaded us with his non too shabby Elvis impersonation. A truly 5 star performance and all free of charge. Helpers (you know who you are) and the many people who donated raffle prizes we are truly grateful for your support. Wendy and the team at Clarins once again did us proud, donating the fantastic goody bags. Last but not least a MASSIVE thank you to everyone who attended, gave so generously (£2278 raised) and partied hard from beginning to end. You never fail to make these events memorable! Lots of love from Carolyn and Fraser ... See MoreSee Less
