Mini golf raises major amount for kilbryde hospice

Tee-riffic East Kilbride shoppers have raised over £5,500 for Kilbryde Hospice this summer by playing a round of mini golf during the school holidays.

The popular nine-hole mini golf course, which ran from the end of June until the end of August, was set up throughout EK, East Kilbride’s Centre West. Donations of £1 per child and £2 per adult were made per round and attracted thousands of adults and children who took on the fun challenge.

The total sum raised – £5,682 – will go directly towards supporting the important work that the charity delivers every day.

Agnes Barwood, Retail Manager at the Kilbryde Hospice store in Centre West said: “This is such a fantastic amount of money raised for the charity and will make a huge contribution to the work we do.  The mini golf course was set up by the team at EK, East Kilbride and they generously agreed that every penny raised would go support the work the charity does. Our thanks go to everyone who played, and of course everyone at EK, East Kilbride.”

Alan Smillie, centre manager at EK, East Kilbride said: “We watched thousands of people having a lot of fun over the summer holidays knowing that a lot of money was being raised to support Kilbryde Hospice’s wonderful work.  Thanks to everyone in the EK community for taking part and raising such a tremendous amount for the charity.  We’re already looking forward to next year when the mini golf will return.”
