McGill's Bus Group has continued its support for The Glasgow Children's Hospital Charity with an event at Glasgow Science Centre.

Glasgow Children's Hospital Charity hosted its first-ever Legacy Partner Dinner and Innovation Networking Event last week, with McGill's Buses sponsoring the event.

The exclusive gathering celebrated the spirit of innovation in healthcare, highlighting the invaluable support from its Legacy Partners who made generous pledges during the charity's 20th Anniversary Ball last November. 

More than 160 guests attended an informative reception, where exhibitors showcased the latest innovations in maternity, neonatal and paediatric healthcare.

This immersive experience allowed attendees to witness first-hand the ground-breaking advancements that are shaping the future of healthcare.

The evening brought together distinguished keynote speakers, who engaged in insightful discussions about the future of innovation and technology in healthcare in Scotland, backed by the unwavering support of Glasgow Children's Hospital Charity.

Host Bernard Ponsonby hosted a Q&A session with an esteemed panel of healthcare experts, opening a dynamic exchange of thoughts and ideas between the audience and the panel.

Kirsten Watson, chief executive at Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity, said: "This event served as a reminder of the impact that philanthropy can have in moving healthcare forward and positively transforming the lives of children in hospital.

"It is thanks to the support of each and every one of our partners and supporters that the charity looks ahead to a future where medical innovation thrives, paving the way for improved healthcare in Scotland."

The sponsorship from McGill's was further support following James and Sandy Easdale of McGill’s Bus Group's £50,000 donation when the charity held its first fund-raising ball for three years in November 2022.
