The GPI team taking part, Andy Robson, Gary McKenna, Jack Boyce and Amy Banks, will take on the 18-hole Dalmahoy Championship East Course, at the Dalmahoy Hotel and Country Club, in support of Lauren’s cause.
Mrs Dickie, 34, was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis 14 years ago. Since then, her condition has deteriorated to the point where she is now hoping to raise a portion of the £56,000 required to undertake the advanced treatment, Autologous Hematopoietic Stem Cell Therapy. All money raised from the golf day, and through Lauren’s Go Fund Me page, will go straight to the fund.
Team member and Key Account Manager at GPI, Jack Boyce, said “We know Lauren on a personal basis, having worked with her on projects during her time at Diageo and now at Pernod Ricard Chivas. So, of course, we want to support this fundraising event. However, we’re sure that anyone who reads her story will understand the need to donate.”
Multiple sclerosis is a condition which can affect the brain and/or spinal cord and manifests in a wide range of symptoms depending on the individual. Sufferers of the disease often have to overcome daily problems such as impaired mobility and extreme fatigue but everyone’s experience is different.
