The Veteran’s Charity Erskine has received a generous food and drinks sponsorship of £7,000 from SPAR Scotland for the biggest event in its calendar – The Erskine Military Ball to be held on 20 September 2019.
The Doubletree by Hilton Glasgow Hotel will host the glittering jewel in the charity’s social calendar with nearly 500 guests to attend the black-tie event for an evening of good food, drinks and entertainment.
SPAR Scotland presented a cheque in the amount of £7,000 to Erskine’s Head of Fundraising and Communications Sara Bannerman. The Area Manager for SPAR Scotland David Cunningham said: “We are delighted, once again, to sponsor the annual Erskine Military Ball. This is always a wonderful evening and we are proud to support Erskine and the remarkable work it does in caring for our Veterans.”
Sara said: ‘Erskine is delighted to welcome, for the third year running, SPAR Scotland as Food and Drink Sponsor for The Erskine Military Ball 2019. As we need to raise over £9m each year to support our Veterans, events such the Military Ball, our annual flagship event, play a vital part in our fundraising work. We are extremely grateful for the generous support of SPAR Scotland and indeed to all our sponsors who help to make a such a huge and positive impact on the lives of the Veterans cared for at Erskine.’’
