A group of Aberdeen City and Shire’s leading businesses raised a few pounds short of £8000 for some of the most vulnerable members of our communities.

Turning Point Scotland’s annual charity golf day, now in its 17th year, raised £7991 at Newburgh-on-Ythan Golf Club last Friday.

All the proceeds raised goes towards additional benefits for people being supported, to help improve the overall quality of their life or aid their recovery.

Nineteen teams took part in the golf tournament, with Seatronics Ltd winning with the best score.

Marisa Mahood, Communications Manager for Turning Point Scotland said:

“We are extremely delighted with the money raised which will benefit some of the most vulnerable adults in the north east of Scotland.

“Our core funding goes towards supporting people. The money raised by the golf day is a bonus which provides some extra benefits to the individuals within our services.

“We would like to take this opportunity to thank Newburgh-on-Ythan Golf Club for the use of their golf course, Andy Gray of NCS Survey for his dedication and support to the event over the last 17 years and to the individual teams for taking part and supporting the work of Turning Point Scotland.”
