More than 200 golfers took part in a charity golf day to raise funds and awareness of dementia.

Old Firm legends Andy Goram and Frank McAvennie took part at the event at Balmore Golf Club.

The competition for the David Sherwood Trophy was held in aid of Battle against Dementia BAD charity.

The event was organised by charity founder, Dougie McCluskey, whose father died from vascular dementia four years ago.

Mr McCluskey is raising funds to build a dementia unit in the grounds of the golf club, which has agreed to donate land at a peppercorn rent.

Mr McCluskey said he has been dedicating his time to fundraising for dementia care and research since his father died.

He said: “It was the roughest time of my life watching someone I love deteriorating from this horrible disease.

“Now it’s all about spending every spare time I have to raise awareness and fund raising campaigning to find a cure.”

The golf day is expected to have raised up to £20,000 once all donations are counted from entry fees for the teams of four, donations from individuals and companies, and an auction and raffles on the day and evening of the event.

Mr McCluskey, who is also the golf shop manager at the club, said: It was fantastic. The aim now is to do it every year and to organise other events to raise as much money for the dementia unit as we can.”
