PTS manager remembered with charity golf day
Published: 14 November, 2014
In memory of the late Mark Grant, former Plumbing Trade Supplies (PTS) business manager and devoted charity fundraiser, PTS recently held a charity golf day that successfully raised over £3,000 for the SAMH and Cruse Bereavement charities.
Mr Grant worked at PTS in Scotland for more than five years and was the driving force behind many annual charity events held at Bonnybridge Golf Club, of which he was a member. PTS staff decided that it was only right to continue his good work, and organised the event this year in his name, at the very same club.
“Mark sadly passed away one year to the date of the charity event, and we felt that we could not let the day go unnoticed,” said Kevin Dermidy, regional director Scotland for PTS. “Mark was not only a valued friend and colleague, but also a dedicated charity worker, so we felt that holding the same event in his name was the best way to honour his work.”
The £3,000 charity money achieved by the event was raised through golfer entry fees and raffle tickets. Water treatment specialist Sentinel kindly donated the winner’s trophy, as it has done for many years while Mr Grant was organising the event. Gary Campbell, Sentinel’s area manager for Scotland and Northern Ireland, and Mr Grant’s mother, awarded the trophy to the victorious ‘Team Rio’, which took inspiration for its name from Mr Grant’s favourite band, Duran Duran.
