A GOLF day in Invergordon raised £8240 – a figure set to be match-funded by an Easter Ross business.

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

Cash raised will go to support a variety of worthy causes within Pat Munro (Alness) Ltd's operational work areas.

The day was voted a huge success and enjoyed by everyone who took part with lots of support from businesses across Easter Ross and Sutherland.

Hamish Little, organiser and representative of the Pat Munro Foundation, said: “Invergordon Golf Club were incredible hosts and made sure everything ran smoothly on the day and we would like to thank everyone who supported this event from hole sponsors, volunteers and everyone who donated a raffle/auction prize.

"A special thanks must go to our main sponsor, Nynas, and our other sponsors Whyte & Mackay and Newton Property Management. We had a tremendous response from businesses across the region who wanted to be involved including Travis Perkins who donated the winning prize – a four-ball at Fortrose Golf Club and Royal Dornoch Golf Club who donated the four-ball for the 100 squares competition we ran alongside the day.”
