|Margaret Whelan, Sal Shepherd, Ali Mackie and Karen Ballantyne.|
10,000 people across four cities in Scotland chose to sleep out overnight, and in Edinburgh this took place in Princes Street Gardens.
The SocialBite Charity aims to help those who have no choice but to sleep out in all weathers.
Three lady golfers from Dunbar Golf Club, current Ladies Champion Margaret Whelan, past champions Karen Ballantyne (Scottish Vets Vice Captain) and Sal Shepherd together with Craigmillar Park Golf Club’s Ali Mackie took part in the event.
The ladies were under no illusion their experience would be a true representation of what it is like to sleep rough every night butit certainly was a tough night. The event heightened the ladies awareness of what an ordeal it must be to have to take to the streets each night, especially at this time of year.
The ladies are so grateful to all those who have supported them.
To date they have raised around £8,000 and stand 8th in the league of Top Individual and Teams Fundraisers. The fundraising has not stopped and the ladies are grateful to Dunbar Golf Club who have donated 2 four ball vouchers (for play Monday to Wednesday) to auction.
Normal price would be between £50 and £85 PER PERSON depending on when you play so there is a chance of a real bargain here! Anyone wanting to place a bid should email Karen on email@example.com
Closing date for bids is Saturday 22nd December. The Dunmuir Hotel have also offered a 10% discount to anyone who would like to stay there before or after their game.
Also donations can still be made to https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/Team/KBsAllStars until 24 December.
PLEASE SUPPORT KAREN AND HER TEAM AND SEE IF WE CAN GET THEM TO THE TOP SPOT
