Sponsors and golfing enthusiasts responded magnificently to a charity golf day at Leven, organised by four siblings who are ascending Africa’s highest peak.

I’ve had loads of lovely emails from those who were playing. All seemed to have enjoyed the event and had a great day.

Around 170 golfers came to play last week and the event raised over £7150, taking the sisters’ total to date to over £17,000.

“The competition was split into two groups – gents and mixed/ladies teams,” said Jen, who is secretary-treasurer of the Leven Links Joint Committee . “We ran several on-course events with nearest the pin, longest drive, straightest drive and the great MND ‘putt-off’.

She added: “I’ve had loads of lovely emails from those who were playing. All seemed to have enjoyed the event and had a great day.” The sisters are holding an ’80s night in Aberdeen on May 29 and Jen is staging a race night on July 11 at Leven Thistle Golf Club.
