Darlington fundraising hero Gill Scott honoured with invitation to the King’s Garden Party

A Darlington woman who has raised more than £200,000 has been honoured by the King for her charity efforts.

In recognition of her dedication and hard work, Gill Scott, assistant general manager at the Bannatyne Health Club & Spa in Darlington, was invited to attend the prestigious King’s Garden Party on July 2nd at Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh.

Gill’s tireless efforts and commitment to supporting children with cerebral palsy and other needs have not only raised substantial funds but also increased awareness about the challenges these children and their families face. Her outstanding contribution has now been acknowledged at the highest level.

She began her fundraising when a friend’s son was diagnosed with leukaemia and supported Children with Cancer UK.  After he sadly passed away she turned her focus to Cerebral Palsy Scotland to help fund therapy for a young family member with the condition.  Gill has run numerous marathons and organises a charity ball every year.

Speaking about her invitation, Gill Scott said: “I was incredibly honoured and humbled to be invited to the King’s Garden Party.  It was an amazing experience, a real once in a lifetime event.”

“Fundraising for children’s charities, especially Cerebral Palsy Scotland, is something I am deeply passionate about. The support from my community and colleagues has been overwhelming, and I am thrilled that together we have made such a significant impact.”

Duncan Bannatyne, chairman and chief executive of the Bannatyne Group also praised Gill’s achievements. “Gill’s dedication to fundraising and helping children in need is truly inspirational. Her hard work and commitment embody the spirit of the Bannatyne Group. We are extremely proud of her and delighted that her efforts have been recognised with an invitation to the King’s Garden Party.”

Gill’s invitation to this prestigious event not only highlights her personal achievements but also shines a spotlight on the important work done by Cerebral Palsy Scotland and other children’s charities.
