Annual golf charity event goes with a swing with £3,000 raised for charity

Golfing enthusiasts raised £3,000 for local charities at the Longniddry and District Rotary Club annual golf day.

The event – a key date in the calendar - brought players from across the area to the Craigielaw Golf course, all to raise funds for the various local charities supported by the Rotary Club including Marie Curie, Edinburgh Children Hospital and Muirfield Riding Therapy.

Places for People supported the event by sponsoring two holes across the course, which saw more than 60 golfers taking part on the scenic course.

Places for People’s Managing Director for Scotland, Willie Lockhart, said: “At Places for People, one of our main aims is putting people first and supporting the communities where we deliver homes. We were keen to get involved and support the Rotary Club’s event, especially as it was to support much-needed fundraising that will go some way to help local causes.”

Robin Cuthbertson from Longniddry and District Rotary Club said “We would like to thank Places for People for their support and for being a sponsor at our annual golf event. It was great to see the golfers tee off, especially as we raised more than £3,000 for local charities after such a challenging year.”

Places for People’s Longniddry Village is being developed in partnership with landowners Wemyss and March Estates. The development of two, three and four-bedroom homes includes extensive open space with a new village green and restored mill pond, and with Edinburgh only 20 minutes away this development offers the best of country living.
