A GOLF tournament held by Apex Church has raised £1,100 for the Aberdeen Liver Fund.

The event took place on September 14 at Peterhead Gof Club and a total of seven teams, comprising four players, took part.

Apex Church assistant pastor, Willie Watt, told the Buchanie: “It was a fantastic day for all concerned, despite playing in Arctic conditions.

“The wind was the worst I have seen it for quite a while, but it didn’t deter from the spirit of the day and everyone had a superb time.

“We would like to take this opportunity to thank Peterhead Golf Club who gave us free access to their facilities and to all our sponsors who donated prizes.

“Special thanks must go to Stephen Buchan who provided the fish for the day.”

The event was won by Alan Stephen’s team and now plans are in the pipeline for a similar event next year.

Dr. Andrew Fraser a consultant gastroenterologist at ARI went along to the Apex Centre yesterday (Monday) to pick up the cheque.

He said: “Aberdeen Liver Fund was set up for the support of patients and staff with liver disease and is used to finance education and equipment for the service of patients.”
