Opticians from Saltcoats helped raise almost £3,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support by taking part in a marathon golf tournament. Alistair and Jennie Ferdinand, who are both store directors from the local Specsavers, personally raised £400 adding a significant amount to the overall total.

No ordinary golf day out

The sponsored Golf Challenge, held at the world renowned Gleneagles course, saw staff from various Specsavers stores across Scotland complete up to four rounds of golf in one day within 17 hours.

Alistair and Jennie played 54 holes and successfully accomplished three rounds to raise funds for the charity.

Thank you to everyone that donated

Alistair Ferdinand said: ‘The tournament was certainly no ordinary golf day out but all competitors rose to the challenge.

‘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.’
