 M and H StreetGolf Fun Day at Hamilton Accies on September 3

M and H Logistics, a Glasgow-based logistics company with seven other depots across Scotland and the North West of England, continue to celebrate their 30-year business anniversary. This time with a local community at Hamilton Accies.

Proud PGA Partner,  M and H have come together with the Professional Golfers Association, Scottish Golf, Golf Foundation and Hamilton Academical FC to organise this fantastic event.
Thirty children age 8-14 will be given an opportunity to try golf in a very unusual way. SuperSeal Stadium will be transformed into a street golf trail of ten various challenges, from pitching a golf ball into the back of a M&H truck through to sandpit target.

The group of 30 children will include Hamilton Academical youth academy members and children from Blameless charity which has been formed to help the children and families of those suffering with addiction. Colin McGowan, one of Trustees said
“We aim to provide fun times and ultimately happy memories for children who have been directly or indirectly affected by addiction or alcoholism and the M and H StreetGolf Fun Day at Accies will certainly deliver great memories and perhaps a golf ambition.”

M and H Logistics Marketing and Development Director, Anna Kozlowska said “M and H have joined the PGA as a Partner last year and whilst we are getting ready for the M and H  Logistics Scottish PGA Championship qualifiers at Crieff and then championship itself at Gleneagles, I am delighted we have all come together to connect with the local community to make this event happen.
"Our business supports over a dozen charities every year through various events and donations, so we are very proud we can include this one on our annual schedule.”

The Managing Director, Tom Wotherspoon is also a Trustee at Blameless, a charity which he says is very close to his heart.

Shona Malcolm, Secretary of the PGA in Scotland said
“We are delighted to add value to our partnership with M and H Logistics by supporting the company’s community activities through a fun golf experience for young people that might not otherwise have the chance to try the game. 
"By introducing M and H Logistics to The Golf Foundation and to Scottish Golf, the governing body for amateur golf in Scotland, we have been able to facilitate an innovative cross-sector, cross-organisation and now cross-sport working arrangement in Scotland which clearly demonstrates the value of collaboration in meeting the objectives all parties.
"September 3rd will be a great experience for the young people and the organisers alike, and hopefully the first of many.”

Blane Dodds, CEO of Scottish Golf, said: “We are delighted to be collaborating with M and H Logistics, the Professional Golfers’ Association, the Golf Foundation and Hamilton Academical FC to deliver this exciting opportunity for young people. This is a great example of partners working together on a community initiative that offers a different approach to trying golf in a relaxed and fun environment, with the potential to encourage new players into the game. We look forward to contributing to the success of this event and hope the young participants thoroughly enjoy their day.”


Brendon Pyle, CEO of the Golf Foundation commented “We are very proud all parties have worked together to create this great event for the local community. We hope it will inspire the children and are confident it will be a fun day to remember by all.”

M and H StreetGolf Fun Day at Accies is the first event of its kind in Scotland and M and H Logistics plan to use it a model across various other locations so watch this space.
