Golf day at Newburgh to support charity

Newburgh-on-Ythan Golf Club will host an event on Friday which will benefit a charity providing support for people with learning disabilities and issues around drugs, mental health and homelesssness.

North-east businesses will put forward 18 teams for the golf day being organised by Turning Point Scotland.

The competition is in its 17th year and has raised thousands of pounds for the charity.

Events over the years have paid for computers to assist people searching for jobs, or update their CVs, also the refurbishment of meeting rooms and social areas.

They have also helped to fund Turning Point Scotland’s work with Wild Things, a Scottish environment education programme which organises wilderness and conservation courses.

The charity’s services in Moray and Aberdeenshire include Northern Horizons in Peterhead and Banff, Studio 8 and Greyfriars Close in Elgin, and PITSTOP in Fraserburgh.
