A Kirkcaldy optician has helped raise almost £3,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support by taking part in a marathon golf tournament. Neil Dibble from Specsavers in the town personally raised £100, adding to the impressive overall total.

The sponsored Golf Challenge, held at the world renowned Gleneagles course, saw staff from various Specsavers stores across Scotland complete four rounds of golf in one day. The 72 holes which staff successfully accomplished meant that they walked a total of 28 miles to raise funds for the charity.

Thank you to everyone who donated

Neil Dibble said: ‘The tournament was certainly no ordinary golf day out but all competitors rose to the challenge and completed the 72 holes within 17 hours.

We are delighted with the amount raised for Macmillan Cancer Support as it is such an important cause which has touched the lives of many staff in our stores. I would like to thank everyone that donated and helped us to reach this superb total.’
