“It made me realise that I can achieve lots more things in life and that I should try any new opportunities,” said a delighted Dodds.

“It has helped give me the confidence and skills to live independently. It has shown my family what I am capable of and given them the confidence to let me do it.”

The club was also able to give Dodds her first job placement working in its café and the work experience proved invaluable as she now works for Inspire Catering at Stewart’s Melville College.“Her golfing experience has increased her self-confidence and independence,” said mum Marjorie.
