Media Release: Archway fundraising event to tee off for tenth time

AN Aberdeen-based charity is looking for golfers to take part in a tenth anniversary special of one of its most popular fundraising events.

Archway, which supports adults and children with learning difficulties, is once again hosting a charity golf day at Peterculter Golf Club on Friday, May 6.

To mark the tenth anniversary of the event, professional golfer, Peter Smith, will be on hand to give participants the chance to pit their skills against him.

The event, which is for teams of four, is an ideal day out for friends or colleagues and includes a round of golf and soup and sandwiches on arrival.

There will also be a buffet following the tournament as well as a prize giving presentation for the winners.

Businesses can also take the opportunity to have their corporate logo displayed at the event by sponsoring one of the course holes.

Fundraising and PR manager for Archway, Janine Davies, said: “The golf day is definitely one of our most popular fundraising activities and we are delighted that Peter Smith will be taking part to help us mark our tenth anniversary.

“In order to continue providing the services and support that we do, it is vital that we manage to keep raising funds and events like the golf day are a fantastic way to do this.

“The day out provides the perfect opportunity for teams of friends or colleagues to get together and do their bit for a local charity.”
