Golf day suc­cess at Cathkin Braes

Rutherglen Reformer - - Intimations -

Cathkin Braes Golf Club played host to a golf day that raised more than £20,000 for lo­cal a char­ity.

The Andy Cameron Clas­sic event helped raise the money for Kil­bryde Hospice on Fri­day, May 20.

Ninety-six golfers at­tended and had a fan­tas­tic day in the nice weather.

They played 18 holes of golf fol­lowed by a two course lunch, prize giv­ing, auc­tion and raf­fle hosted by Andy Cameron.

This year a team from City Hold­ings Ltd claimed the tro­phy.

Chloe Martin, com­mu­nity and events fundraiser at Kil­bryde Hospice, said:“We would like to ex­press our thanks to ev­ery­one who made our golf day a mas­sive suc­cess. Spe­cial thanks to Andy Cameron for be­ing such a fan­tas­tic host, and of course to our spon­sors Prospect Health­care.

“Thanks to all in­volved we man­aged to raise an amaz­ing £20,750 of much needed funds for Kil­bryde Hospice.”

The hospice are set to have an ex­cit­ing few months as they work to­wards open­ing their 12 bed in­pa­tient fa­cil­ity after re­cently re­ceiv­ing their Health Im­prove­ment Scot­land ac­cred­i­ta­tion cer­tifi­cate.

Once fully op­er­a­tional the hospice will be pro­vid­ing spe­cial­ist pal­lia­tive care and sup­port to those in La­nark­shire af­fected by a life lim­it­ing ill­ness.
