Sporting legend Bernard Gallacher helped a leading North Sea oil producer raise more than £71,000 for charity.
The star and his wife Lesley turned out for the annual golf day, organised by EnQuest, which involved more than 150 golfers from 31 energy companies.
The event took place at the Fairmont Course in St Andrews.
The money raised from the golf day, as well as a raffle and auction, will be split between EnQuest’s nominated charities – the Paul Lawrie Foundation and Archway – and Mr Gallacher’s defibrillator campaign, Play Golf – Help Save Lives.
The former Ryder Cup captain set up the organisation after he suffered a cardiac arrest at the Marcliffe Hotel and Spa in Aberdeen last August.
He believes he owes his life to the fact that the premises had a defibrillator and is now aiming to equip every golf club and driving range in the UK and Ireland with a similar device by the end of this year.
Mr Gallacher said: “I’d like to express my sincere thanks to all those involved in the event and for raising such an amazing amount of money for three worthwhile charities.”
Falck Safety Services donated 10 defibrillators which were sold as part of the fund-raising effort on the day.
Neil McCulloch, president, North Sea, at EnQuest, said: “We’re absolutely astounded by the amount that has been raised. It is well beyond our expectations and we are incredibly grateful to the players, their companies and our sponsors for the tremendous commitment and support they continue to show.”
