Barnardo’s Scotland’s annual golf tournament, which has been running for close to a decade, is aiming to raise even more money for the charity on Thursday 1st June 2017 at Archerfield Links, East Lothian.

Popular with local businesses and groups of golfing enthusiast friends, the competition has raised over £60,000 to date.

Legendary Scotland and British Lions rugby player, Craig Chalmers who will be hosting the event, said: “I’m delighted to be part of Barnardo’s Scotland’s annual charity golf day this year! Fidra Links at Archerfield is a perfect setting for a great game of golf and with lots of on-course competitions planned, I know it will be a brilliant day for all.

“Taking part in the golf day is a fun and easy way of supporting this children’s charity that offers vital support to some of Scotland’s most vulnerable families.”

Jordyn Armstrong, events coordinator for Barnardo’s Scotland, said: “We’re honoured that Craig will be playing an important role in our annual fundraising golf day. We’re really excited to be heading back to Archerfield Links this year too – it’s such a great course that everyone always enjoys. The day is a great way to network, socialise and can also be a fun teambuilding event, all the while contributing to a worthy cause.”

The cost per team of four for the Barnardo’s Scotland Golf Day, inclusive of a two course supper for four, is £600. To register your team or for more information, please contact Jordyn Armstrong on, 0131 446 7021 or visit
