WATER AID RAISES £16000 AT LAKE CORPORATE EVENT.
The big news this week was the amount raised by Wateraid
who held their corporate fishing event at the Lake on Friday 22nd June.
The organiser Robin Lambert of Scottish Water landed some big corporate
sponsers for the event - Future Environmental Services, Scottish Water
Contracting, Orange Business Services, MWH Global, Farrer Consulting and
Waven Plastics. The fantastic sum could not have been achieved without
the help also
of the smaller sponsors including those companies who sent teams to the
event and of course the enormous amount of time spent by Robin Lambert
of Scottish Water who organised the event and collected the sponsorship.
The event was won by Change Homes Ltd. Pictured above with Managing Director
Kevin McCabe (on left) are Jock Kettles, James Litster and Derek Marklow.
