Despite wind and heavy rain everyone had fun taking part in Breast Cancer 2000’s recent annual golf event in Drymen.

This extremely popular event at Buchanan Castle Golf Club on Friday, June 5 started with breakfast before the shotgun start and lunch with prize giving following the game.

The winning team, whose score was well beyond all others, included MB Aerospace - Craig Hyslop, Craig Gallagher, Bill Young and Alastair Hillis.

Nearest the pin for gents only was won by Richard Britton and longest drive for gents was won by Scott Hamilton with Anne Mills winning ladies longest drive.

This year there was fierce competition for the prize for the best dressed team, with the ladies team winning.

The event raised around £8,000, which will go the the West of Scotland Beatson Cancer Centre in Glasgow.

BC 2000 would like to thank all those who contributed to the day, whether taking part or helping, all the sponsors, all the staff at BCGC (green staff, pro staff and catering), for ensuring everything went so well and of course all those who generously donated the amazing prizes.

Breast Cancer 2000 was established in March 2000 to raise funds and public awareness for patient care and comfort at the Beatson West of Scotland Cancer Centre and the Western Infirmary Breast Care Unit.

The charity was founded by their late chairperson Doreen Don who was a patient at the Western Infirmary Breast Care Unit where she underwent a mastectomy aged 42. Doreen was inspired to set-up Breast Cancer 2000 due to the excellent care she received.
