AN Easter Ross golf day has netted £15,000 for local causes after a tremendous response from local businesses.

The Pat Munro Foundation held its annual golf day at Invergordon Golf Club.

It raised an incredible £7514 which will be match funded by Pat Munro (Alness) Ltd.

The money will go towards helping local charities and community groups. Each year the event is supported by a growing number of local businesses and individuals who give generously through sponsorship, donations for raffle and auction prizes or volunteering to help on the day.
