Binn Group drives home air ambulance support

Binn Group has chipped in £18,000 to support Scotland’s Charity Air Ambulance

Author: Binn Group/06 January 2015/Categories: Business

A charity golf event teed up by Glenfarg-based Binn Group has chipped in £18,000 to support Scotland’s Charity Air Ambulance.

The Balvaird Charity Golf Day, sponsored by the Skene Group, was staged over the Junior Ryder Cup course at Rosemount, Blairgowrie, and involved 19 teams with players driving in from all over the country to take part.

And on Friday, organisers and sponsors gathered at Binn Group’s headquarters to hand over the funds to the Perth Airport-based frontline emergency helicopter service.

SCAA’s head of fundraising Sally Cameron welcomed the “outstanding contribution” and thanked all who supported the event as well as father and son, John and Allan MacGregor, of Binn Group for choosing the life-saving air ambulance as their nominated charity. “Everyone who contributed in any way to the day has helped to keep SCAA flying and delivering it’s vital service in time-critical emergencies,” she said. “The charity owes a huge debt of gratitude to Binn Group and all their contacts and supporters for raising such an outstanding sum.”

Binn Group Chairman John MacGregor said they were delighted to support SCAA, pointing out that the country’s only charity-funded helicopter air ambulance was a vital resource for the whole country.

“Binn Group is based in a rural setting and we often have operatives working in remote and isolated areas,” he explained. “We see the value of a helicopter air ambulance that is capable of reaching and transporting casualties from such locations in time-critical situations and are therefore happy to play our part in raising funds to keep this amazing charity flying.
 

The golf tournament was followed by a meal in the Rosemount clubhouse and entertainment from Fife footballing legend and Provost Jim Leishman. A raffle and auction featuring prizes donated from friends and colleagues of Binn Group also helped boost the charity coffers.
