A charity golf tournament is being held in memory of a Grantown dad-of-two who tragically died of cancer.
The family of 45-year-old Gordon MacBeath have donated a trophy for the competition being organised by Grantown United Football Club.
The tournament at Grantown Golf Club will be followed by an evening function at the Strathspey Royal British Legion, with all proceeds being donated to MacMillan Cancer Support.
Aberdeen FC fan Gordon was aged just 45 when he died in February last year, following a brave and dignified battle with cancer.
He was a keen footballer and golfer and a stalwart of Grantown United FC and Grantown Golf Club.
The Gordon MacBeath Memorial Trophy has been donated by Gordon’s wife Hayley and their two children Kelsey and Jake.
Hayley said: “On behalf of Gordon’s family, I would like to thank Grantown United FC for organising this golf tournament to celebrate the life of Gordon and raise money for an excellent cause.
“I would also like to thank Colin Lawson Builders Ltd for their sponsorship of the event.’
Grantown United FC Chairman Ian Paterson said: “Gordon was a much loved and popular lad and I am delighted that Grantown United can work with his family, local clubs, businesses and the community to raise money for MacMillan Cancer Support.”
The golf tournament will be a Texas Scramble format and entry forms are available from Grantown United’s FC Facebook page.
The event was launched yesterday at the golf course by Hayley, Mr Paterson, golf club captain Allan Thom, Moira McLeod, chairwoman of the local MacMillan Cancer Support group, and Colin Lawson, director of Colin Lawson Builders.
