Serco’s Marine Services team in Greenock raises over £1,000 for charity

Date: 30 Sep 2015

Serco’s Marine Services team in Greenock has raised over £1,000 for charity following a family fundraising day on-board SD Oronsay last month. The money collected from bucket donations and a prize raffle will be split between two charities: Help for Heroes and Euan’s Cause.

Euan’s Cause is a charity very close to the hearts of the Greenock team. George Lewis, an Able Seaman on Oronsay’s sister vessel Omagh, sadly lost his grandson, Euan in 2012 to a very rare heart condition called Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS) at only 18 months old. The cause seeks to raise awareness of the condition and raise money for Yorkhill Children’s Charity at the Royal Hospital for Children in Glasgow.

George helped to organise the event alongside Steve Foster, Pony Moore (Vessel Master), Charlie Ginley and Billy McFarlane.

Nearly 60 employees and their families boarded SD Oronsay for a day trip to Rothesay to attend the Bute Highland Games. The 60-passenger vessel is normally used to transfer Royal Navy personnel between various ports in The Clyde, and submarines and warships.

Phil Ireland, Serco’s Contract Manager commented: “When I was approached by Billy with the idea of a family fundraising day, I thought it was a really innovative way to combine a fun day out for our families with raising money for two incredible charities. The day was a great success, enjoyed by all and I was hugely impressed by the amounts raised.”
