Retirement of Professor Colville Laird

We would like to invite you to join us in an evening in honour of Professor Colville Laird on his retirement from BASICS Scotland and we would be delighted if you could join us to toast his many years of service. This is a momentous occasion for us here at BASICS Scotland and we hope you are able to help support us in celebrating his achievements and commitment to pre-hospital emergency care in Scotland.

The event will be held within the Playfair Hall, Surgeons Quarter, Nicolson Street, Edinburgh, EH8 9DW on Saturday 23rd February 2019. Details of the venue can be found here.

The evening begins at 7.00pm with a drinks reception followed by a 3 course meal served from 7.30pm.

I’m sure you will appreciate, as a charity we have limited financial resources and to this end many colleagues have offered to contribute toward the costs of this evening. Although BASICS Scotland are able to subsidise the event we would be grateful for a suggested minimum contribution of £25 towards the costs.

We would also welcome any help you can provide in supplying photo’s, anecdotes or messages to be collated into a memory book commemorating his many years at BASICS Scotland. We have included the facility for you to add these to the RSVP form below and feel free to provide as much embarrassing details as possible!

We have had many colleagues past and present wishing to contribute towards a leaving gift for Colville. If you would also like to donate to this please add the value of your contribution to the total amount in the form below and we will be in touch to arrange collection.

We hope that you will be able to attend on the evening and look forward to hearing from you.

Please complete the RSVP form below indicating whether you wish to attend the event.
