Team Quensh and guests were honoured to attend the charity golf day and dinner ‘The Battle of the Balls’ hosted by the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation and the Russell Anderson Foundation on Thursday 5th of May.
The day kicked off with some fun and competitive rounds of golf on the Meldrum Country House Golf Course. The course looks over the beautiful northeast countryside and was the perfect setting for this event. Into the evening the team enjoyed a dinner coupled with great stories from the legends of rugby and football such as Gavin Hastings, Jim Leighton and Russell Anderson himself.
Everyone at Quensh would like to say a huge thank you to everyone involved in organising the event and thank you to our guests for being part of such an enjoyable evening.

The Russell Anderson Foundation was established by former Aberdeen Football Club captain Russell Anderson with the look to making sport accessible in some of Aberdeen’s most socially deprived areas. Since launching in 2012, the Russell Anderson Foundation has been able to contribute to children’s physical activity levels by introducing football – and more recently tennis – to numerous Primary School timetables.
To hear the progress being made by both charities was wonderful and we look forward to supporting them further in the future. To find out how you can get involved with these incredible organisations check out:
