Top table guests at the Barrie Douglas Foundation sporting dinner at the Salutation Hotel, Perth.
TWO young Perthshire golfers were guests of honour at the second Barrie Douglas Foundation sporting dinner.
Blairgowrie Golf Club’s Scottish internationalists Gregor Graham and Cormac Sharpe were appointed ambassadors to the Foundation earlier this year, along with fellow member Katy Alexander.
All three have enjoyed a successful season, with Gregor pipping Cormac to win “The Race to the Machrie” event staged in Islay in tandem with Foundations teed-up by top pros Paul Lawrie and Stephen Gallacher.
Guest speakers at the sell-out dinner backed by Dental Technique and McLeod Glaziers at Perth’s Salutation Hotel were Willie Allan MBE and Eric Davidson.
A five figure sum was raised, which will help support youth development across a range of sports.
The Foundation, set-up in memory of the Perth businessman who died captaining a Scottish team at the European Boys Championships in Spain, has been chosen as the Perthshire Chamber of Commerce’s charity this year.
