We were delighted to be chosen as one of the beneficiaries of the 2017 Thorntons Investments Sports Challenge Dinner. The Dinner, which was held in May at the Apex Hotel in Dundee, raised over £34,000 to be divided between The Cornerstone Foundation and Children's Aid.
The popular Sports Challenge Dinner, has raised over £100,000 over the past four years for local worthy causes. The event pits guests against each other in a ‘Question of Sport’ style quiz with the overall champions taking home the Sports Challenge trophy - as well as the honour of being the top sports brains in Tayside.
Stephen Webster, Chief Executive, Thorntons Investments, said: “I am immensely proud that the Sports Challenge Dinner has gone from strength to strength. Raising over £100,000 is a great achievement and testimony to our city’s generosity. The money raised this year will make a real difference to services in our local community and I’d like to thank everyone who participated and contributed on the night.”
Lisa Duthie, Leader, The Cornerstone Foundation, said: "We are incredibly grateful to the whole team at Thorntons Investments for their incredible work and amazing generosity.
"The funds raised will be used locally to support our Dundee Children's Services. It is only with the help of generous supporters like Thorntons, that we are able to ensure that all children, young people and adults supported by Cornerstone are able to enjoy a valued life, the life they choose."
