Letter to Euan MacDonald from Tom Lanigan
As you know, Gavin was a very good footballer and played to a high level winning many leagues and cups in his career. Like yourself, Gavin also supports a team who wears green and white although your team had more success in the big cup competition this season:-)
Gavin made many friends through football and over the last couple of years his former teammates played in the ‘Gavin Lives Life’ Cup. The tournament this year was played on 1 May 2016 and it was Gavin’s wish that every penny raised would be donated to the Euan MacDonald Centre for MND research. I have today (31 May) concluded the final piece of fundraising so would like to confirm that a grand total of £8,071.60 will make its way to the EMD Centre.
This is a small token of our gratitude for everything that the EMD Centre have provided to Gavin over the past few years. From practical advice to voice banking and perhaps the most important aspect of all, the friendship you have given to Gavin. Through this friendship, you have become a role model to Gavin.
With kind regards
