Mar Hall Hotel, Golf & Spa Resort has raised £6,303 in aid of Ardgowan Hospice through a Charity Golf Day on its Earl of Mar Scottish championship golf course.

68 golf enthusiasts played alongside celebrities such as actor Martin Compston, Scottish football legends Frank McAvennie, Gordon Dalziel and Jim Melrose, and Spanish professional golfer Rafa Cabrera-Bello.

Proceeds from the day will now go to Ardgowan Hospice in Greenock which supports and cares for people living across Inverclyde who have been diagnosed with a life-limiting illness, such as cancer, heart failure, lung disease, kidney failure or neurological conditions. This includes vital physical and medical support alongside practical, emotional and wider social support for the individuals and their families.
