Golf Live Volunteering for Maggies

Early start this morning and a race to get to Golf Live at London Golf Club, Nr Brands Hatch in Kent.

I’m volunteering today for Maggies Cancer Caring Centres and Elizabeth Montgomery Foundation.  The Elizabeth Montgomery Foundation was set up by Colin Montgomery in his mother’s name.  Colin has pledged that he will raise funds to open a new Maggies Centre in Aberdeen… no small feat and such an incredible offer.

What an amazing difference a new Centre in Aberdeen will make for so many people.  I’m looking forward to seeing the plans develop, the building opening and hearing people’s feedback on the services offered.
