Strathaven Golf Club se­lected The Haven as the cho­sen char­ity at their re­cent mixed open.

The La­nark­shire-based group were de­lighted to at­tend the event and help raise aware­ness of the sup­port and ser­vices they pro­vide.

A fan­tas­tic £405 was also raised from the raf­fle which took place on the day.

Karen Boyd, com­mu­nity en­gage­ment co-or­di­na­tor at The Haven, said: “We are ex­tremely grate­ful to Strathaven Golf Club for sup­port­ing us in this way.

“It was great to go along to their mixed open and meet with golf club mem­bers and peo­ple from all across La­nark­shire to in­form them of what we do at The Haven.

“We would like to thank every­one who con­trib­uted and raised such a fan­tas­tic amount for the char­ity.”

The Haven pro­vides sup­port to peo­ple af­fected by a range of life-lim­it­ing ill­nesses, their fam­ily mem­bers and car­ers and sup­ports peo­ple across the whole of La­nark­shire through cen­tres in Blan­tyre, Wishaw and Forth on a sel­f­re­fer­ral ba­sis.

The pro­gramme on of­fer at The Haven is pro­vided by a mul­ti­dis­ci­plinary team of nurses, ther­a­pists and vol­un­teers who work closely to­gether to en­sure the high­est stan­dard of care.

They also op­er­ate a dropin cen­tre with no need for med­i­cal re­fer­ral. All the ser­vices are free and to­tally con­fi­den­tial.
