Carlyle Charity Golf Day Raises over £10,000 for Children’s University Scotland
Each year, Carlyle choose a charity partner to support as part of our commitment to investing in future talent and giving back to our community. In 2018, Carlyle were delighted to dedicate our annual Golf Day to raising funds in aid of Children’s University Scotland (CUS), an Edinburgh based charity which offers children aged 5 to 14 opportunities to take part in exciting, interactive and voluntary learning activities outside of normal school hours. CUS’s aim is to raise aspirations, boost achievement and instill a love of learning that will stay with children throughout their lives.
The Charity Golf day raised over £10,000, which CUS will use to develop dedicated new learning platforms and resources for children, parents / carers and schools across Scotland.
We would like to thank Archerfield for their hospitality and all of our generous sponsors for their support: Deloitte, Eastern Western Motor Group, Addleshaw Goddard, Nationwide Vehicle Contracts, Howies, Diageo, Cricket Scotland, Zen Spa, Edinburgh Rugby, Innis & Gunn, Origin Fitness, La P’tite Folie, Montpeliers, Maison Bleue, Black Ivy, Waldorf Astoria, Kyloe and Raasay Distillery.
We would also like to extend a huge thank you to all of our teams, without whom such a brilliant day would not have been possible.
Duggie Carlyle, Founding Partner, Carlyle commented “CUS make a real and demonstrable impact on children’s lives across Scotland. It has been a pleasure supporting them over the last year and we hope the funds raised at this event will give them a platform for further growth. Thank you to all who supported us on the day.”
Neil Mathers, Chief Executive, CUS, added, “The money raised from the Carlyle Charity Golf Day will aid Children’s University Scotland to provide children with a recently re-designed, Scotland-specific Passport to Learning, which enables children to capture their credits and reflect upon their learning activity. It will also help to provide training materials and additional resources for teachers and schools in areas of high deprivation, as well as support the development of online learning activities for parents and carers to engage with their children at home.”
