The Event

The Water of Life Challenge Fundraising Dinner in aid of Edinburgh Sick Kids
The Sheraton Grand, Edinburgh – 150 guests

Famous Grouse sponsored the pre-dinner drinks reception and to accompany a ‘dram’, a ‘wee dash o’ Scottish Water’ was needed so i2detail convinced Scottish Water to become the main sponsor for this worthwhile event - the perfect match.

Grant and Scott had kept diaries during their strenuous trip. To personalise the auction, beautiful bespoke parchment scrolls with each day’s diary extracts were created, personally signed by both Detectives to accompany each of the bottles of whisky auctioned.

i2detail prepared the budget, assisted with table sales, prepared the event collateral and provided the financial reconciliation post-event.

The Water of Life Challenge raised in excess of £20,000 for Edinburgh Sick Kids.

The Assignment

Edinburgh Detectives, DC Grant Wilson & DC Scott MacKay were inspired to raise funds for the Royal Hospital for Sick Children in Edinburgh following their involvement in a case where a baby girl was sensitively treated by staff. The men were touched by their miraculous work and conceived the “The Water Of Life Challenge”. They cycled 1,515 miles visiting every Scottish whisky distillery.

i2detail was asked by the Detectives to organise the fundraising event to auction Grant and Scott’s very special collection of bottles of whisky gathered on their tour.
