Glengoyne raises thousands for soldiers

01 February, 2013

Glengoyne has donated £15,000 to military charity Help for Heroes after a fundraising drive at Scottish sporting venues.

Brand owner Ian Macleod Distillers raised the money two events – the Glengoyne Auld Enemy Dinner at The Balmoral on the eve of the Calcutta Cup on 3 February, and the Glengoyne Auld Enemy Golf Day, a Scotland vs. England tournament.

Alan Wardrop, UK Sales Manager for Ian Macleod Distillers, presented a cheque to Major Tim Grantham on behalf of Help for Heroes, at the Dreghorn Barracks in Edinburgh.

Neil Boyd, UK commercial director at Ian Macloed Distillers, said: “It is a worthwhile charity helping those who have been wounded in Britain’s conflicts and we are proud to support them. Glengoyne recognises and celebrates the passion that is synonymous with the great Auld Enemy rivalry, which lends itself to these sporting charity events.

“Following the success of the 2012 Glengoyne Auld Enemy Dinner in Edinburgh, we are pleased to be hosting an another fundraising Dinner at Dorchester Hotel in London on 1 February and are confident that we will raise significant funds for Help for Heroes.”

Grantham added: “The money raised will help transform the lives of our injured that have experienced life changing injuries and provide support for their families. We look forward to continuing the relationship this year.”

The 2013 Glengoyne Auld Enemy Dinner is being held at The Dorchester Hotel in London on Friday, February 1.
