Ro­tary club raises thou­sands

East Kilbride News - - NEWS - Mark Pirie

East Kil­bride Ro­tary Club were to the fore as they raised thou­sands of pounds at their AMAM golf tour­na­ment.

De­spite weather con­cerns, there were clear skies as the teams teed off at East Kil­bride Golf Club.

Two of the club’s ladies, as­sisted by Ro­tar­ian Jim An­der­son, wel­comed the teams and gave each of them a goodie bag.

All the teams agreed the course was in ex­cel­lent con­di­tion as they hit some good scores.

The cus­tom­ary hos­pi­tal­ity tent af­ter the eighth hole was a wel­come break for the teams as they en­joyed lunch.

In the club­house, the weary golfers were treated to a de­li­cious two-course meal as Brian Doig, co-or­di­na­tor at East Kil­bride and District De­men­tia Car­ers Group, sold raf­fle tick­ets with the star prize of a Kia Stinger car for the week­end and an overnight stay in the Cardrona Ho­tel, Pee­bles, do­nated by Phoenix.

The Don­nelly team of Liam Don­nelly, Michael Church, James Bran­nock and Andy Haughey took top spot and lifted the 50th an­niver­sary tro­phy.

Johnny Di­ack also had rea­son to cel­e­brate as he won long­est drive.

East Kil­bride and District De­men­tia Car­ers Group and the Christ­mas Toys for Kids char­ity will share the £3800 raised by the event and auc­tion.

Mean­while, East Kil­bride Ro­tary Club, in part­ner­ship with Ch­e­sa­peake, will pur­chase toys for chil­dren who, due to what­ever cir­cum­stances, will not re­ceive a gift at Christ­mas.
