Charity Golf Tournament raises over £3,000 in aid of Prostate Scotland

Our congratulations and heartfelt thanks go to Grand Lodge of Scotland member Chris Igoe for his dedication in organising a Charity Golf Tournament which raised £3,137.22 in aid of our work.

This year’s Charity Golf Tournament organised by Chris took place on Tuesday 4 August at Kings Acre Golf Course in Lasswade, Midlothian.  This follows the superb sellout success of the inaugural tournament last year – which also made over £3,000 in aid of our work.  While there were changes made this year to accommodate the extra health and safety requirements, and the teams played in downpours of rain, a great day of golfing was enjoyed by all.  With a number of prizes up for grabs, including Longest Drive and Closest to the Pin, Chris also organised an online prize giving event the following evening for the golfers.

We’d like to say thank you also to the dedication of local businesses, individuals, organisations and lodges who have  sponsored tees, fielded teams, and donated prizes.  Thank you to Kings Acre Golf Course for their assistance and Murrie Thomson for photography.
