NORTH Berwick Rotary Club’s charity golf day raising more than £5,000 for good causes.

The event was held on August 29 at Kilspindie Golf Club.

David Lancaster, Rotary club president, said: “A wonderful day of golf was enjoyed by 24 teams at our charity golf day.

“We had fantastic support from local businesses and individuals and I should like to thank our main sponsor Dandara, our other local sponsors and all those who donated prizes for the day, plus, of course, the many people who took part and supported the event to make it a very special and successful day. A big thank you to you all.”

And he added: “Kilspindie Golf Club’s support was really magnificent, and an excellent meal was enjoyed by everyone in the evening.” The event raised £5,600 with half donated to Children’s Hospices Across Scotland (CHAS), a charity which offer support services for babies, children and young people with life-shortening conditions.

The rest will be used for other charitable projects supported by North Berwick Rotary Club.

The winners on the day were the Motherwell Dossers, captained by Colin Williams.

Dalziel Park Chancers, captained by Stewart Cook, came in second place and the Luscious Ladies, captained by Janice Macleod, came in third.

Duns Rotary Club in Berwickshire were the winning Rotary team.

In addition to the main golf competition, a grand raffle and a ‘Beat the Pro’ competition was held, with players pitching themselves against local assistant golf professional Euan Bowden.
