STAFF from St Andrews Links Trust have presented more than £1000 to two cancer charities in memory of a former colleague.

The money was raised through the trust’s annual Christmas raffle and the proceeds was split between MacMillan Cancer Nurses and Marie Curie Cancer Care.

Staff decided to give money to both organisations in memory of reservations manager Pamela Wood, who passed away last year following a brave battle with cancer.

Both charities offered help and support to Pamela and her family.

The team from St Andrews Links Trust Reservation Department joined Chief Executive Euan Loudon to present Jackie Johnston, of Marie Curie, and Sian Cole, of MacMillan Nurses – Fife Palliative Care Services, with cheques for £530 for their respective charities.

Chief Executive Euan Loudon said: “Pamela was a much-loved member of the team at the trust and colleagues across the Links were unanimous when it came to naming the worthy causes they wished to be recipients of proceeds from the raffle.

“Both Marie Curie Cancer Care and MacMillan Nurses carry out a vital service in St Andrews and beyond, providing individuals and their families battling cancer with invaluable support and assistance.

“Their support was a source of great comfort for Pamela and her family and we are delighted to be able to make these donations today.”
