Local Restaurant kicks off year of fundraising with Charity Golf Day

Dundee based bar and restaurant, The Camperdown Elm has kicked off it’s year of fundraising for Dundee charity, Spectrum.

The centre, on Claverhouse Road, provides an after-school club for children affected by autistic spectrum disorders and their families.

It supports more than 40 families in the local area and was established in 2001.

Derek Reilly, General Manager at the restaurant and his team have chosen to support the charity for the next year. The event on Friday 26th July at Downfield Golf Course looks to help raise vital funds for the charity after a difficult financial year and it’s subject to vandalism in January.

A golfer at this year’s event could also land an impressive drive – behind the wheel of a new car thanks to local company, Mackie Motors.

A hole-in-one on the 17th could see one lucky player pick up the keys to a new MG3 Excite offered as a prize by the team at Mackie Motors.

George Ross, Sales Manager at Mackie Motors Arbroath said: “We’re delighted to support Spectrum’s Golf Tournament. It’s a great charity and provides much needed support to local families through out Tayside. We recently introduced the MG franchise to our group and one lucky player may be in chance to pick up the keys to a new MG3 Excite.”

Derek Reilly, General Manager said: " I would like to thank Mackie Motors for its generous support of our charity golf day. Having such a fantastic prize on offer certainly makes a hole-in-one look a very rewarding prospect. I am sure everyone will be trying their best to hit that winning shot! Support from companies like Mackie Motors really helps us to support local charity, Spectrum.”

An auction will be followed by a dinner at The Camperdown Elm.

Other events planned by the company to help raise funds for the charity include a family fun day on Saturday 27th at the restaurant and the Scot Riders biking day on Sunday 28th which looks to attract individuals from throughout Scotland.

The Camperdown Elm is part of the Marston group of bars and restaurants. The company encourages each venue and their teams to work with local communities and groups.
