Stars Turn Out for Celebrity Golf Day

13 June 2005
A celebrity golf day was held on the Kintyre Court at the Westin Turnberry Golf Resort on Monday 6th June to raise money for the Action Medical Research campaign Touching Tiny Lives, which aims to help sick and vulnerable babies. Present on the day were Rugby heroes Derek Stark and Andy Nichol and running legend Brian Whittle as well as golf supremo Gordon Sherry who joined in with the 20 teams who played on the day. The highly popular golfing event was organised by Action Medical Research volunteer Doreen Mainds, who said: ”We are absolutely delighted with the turn out at this event. We were blessed with the sunshine, and further blessed by managing to raise over £4,000 for the Touching Tiny Lives campaign. Action Medical Research is hoping to raise £3 million in the next 3 years to fund research into vital issues such as prematurity and pre-eclampsia in pregnancy, and we are delighted to have been able to give the campaign such a boost.” The tournament was started off by the Action Medical Research mascot Paddington Bear, teeing off for a very enjoyable day of golf in the sunshine, followed by prize giving, a meal, and featuring John McKelvie as an after dinner speaker. ## ENDS NOTES TO EDITORS PHOTOGRAPHS ARE AVAILABLE OF PADDINGTON BEAR TEEING OFF AND DEREK STARK IN ACTION ON THE COURSE, AMONGST OTHERS.
