Duchess of Montrose Memorial Garden Appeal
Golf Day – 17th September, 2015
This Appeal is for no ordinary garden. The late Catherine, Duchess of Montrose, was President of this Charity based in one of the poorest areas of Glasgow. From the beginning she gave of her time in every way, raising awareness, fundraising, and was well known for rolling up her sleeves and serving the less fortunate perhaps their only meal that day.
May Nicholson who founded the charity still works tirelessly helping alcoholics, drug addicts and the abused. Together these women contributed to many success stories helping many hundreds to a better life. A heroin addict with their wonderful support turned her life round and now works for the Charity, and that is only one example of what was achieved.
As a thank you, the Charity want to create a Memorial Garden which will comprise a quiet area where people can spend time talking through their problems. This may be about an abusive partner, or a worry about alcohol or drug abuse within the family, and that happens on almost a daily basis.
A large raised bed. For some it is their only meal and the Preshal Trust is their only friend.
A safe play area for mothers and children.
The preparatory work involves extensive groundworks and as part of the fundraising for this garden we are holding a golf day at Buchanan Castle Golf Club.
