European Tour duo Stephen Gallacher and Richie Ramsay are helping a Lothians golf club as it rallies to support one of its members.
Faced with a long road to rehabilitation and recovery, his fellow members at West Lothian Golf Club have organised a golf day there on March 19 to meet some of the costs.
“Initially, we had hoped to fill 72 places and have a shotgun start but we’ve had to close the entry at 176 competitors,” said Barrie Lewis.
“We now have over 30 sponsors who have sponsored various packages while there has also been some outstanding sports memorabilia donated, including signed items from both Richie Ramsay and Stephen Gallacher, for an auction.
“It looks like the sum raised will be north of £20,000. This is an unbelievable amount and will hopefully go some way to helping with our good friend’s recovery.
“The way the Bo’ness townsfolk have rallied around Mark’s family at this challenging time has been very humbling and is something Mark’s parents, Joe and Lynne, have appreciated greatly.”
