Texas scram­ble raises cash for Marie Curie

The Oban Times - - SPORT -

AL­MOST £ 3,000 was raised for Marie Curie in the sec­ond an­nual Mike McFall Fu­neral Di­rec­tors char­ity Texas Scram­ble.

Some 120 play­ers took part in this year’s event on Satur­day May 6 at Fort Wil­liam Golf Club.

No lucky win­ners scooped up the car prize on hole 12 again this year, but Sean Fraser shot a fan­tas­tic hole in one on the 16th which saw him take home a cash prize of £750.

Se­nior fu­neral di­rec­tor at Mike McFall’s, Jamie Man­son, said: ‘A big thank you to all who par­tic­i­pated in our sec­ond an­nual char­ity Texas scram­ble. It was an­other fan­tas­tic day and we couldn’t have asked for bet­ter weather.

‘A big thanks to ev­ery­one who do­nated prizes for our raf­fle, bought raf­fle tick­ets and sup­ported our event once again.

‘This year we raised more than £2,900 for Marie Curie, this wouldn’t have been achieved if it wasn’t for all our golfers and sup­port­ers.

A big thank you once again to our hosts Fort Wil­liam Golf Club, and all the staff for all there ef­forts, and to to ev­ery­one that sup­ported us and made it as good a day as it was. We all hope you en­joyed it and look for­ward to host­ing next years which will take place on Satur­day May 5, 2018.’
