The Peterhead Fishermen’s Mission held its annual Golf Tournament last month and it raised over £4,000.

There was great support for the event that was held at Peterhead Golf Club on Friday, June 10.

Various companies and individuals sponsored teams, provided prizes and played on the day.

Steve Murray, superintendent of the Peterhead Mission said: “We would like to express our sincere thanks to all who supported the event.”

A total of £4,170 was raised - £670 of the final amount came from a raffle/auction that included a signed and framed Peterhead Football Club strip donated by local man Paul Buchan.

Paul was seriously injured last year in an incident aboard a fishing trawler and as a result he had his right leg amputated.

Paul donated the strip as a way of thanking the Mission for all the help and support they had given him and his family over the last year.

The following day, Paul travelled to London with Steve to join the Queen’s 90th Birthday celebrations at the Patron’s Party.

Paul and his family would like to thank everyone at the Mission, High Dependancy Wards 505 and 507, the Search and Rescue team and Charlie McDonald for his help following the incident.
