THE annual Friends of the BGH Schloss Roxburghe Charity Golf Day consisting of 16 teams of four players took place on September 28 and raised just over £5,000.

The money allows the charity to buy furniture, inside and out, for the "Friendly Cabin" erected at Huntlyburn in the spring of this year which was mostly paid for from the proceeds of last year’s Friends charity golf day.

“The space to Grow team is extremely happy to have the Friends support in progressing our long term vision of creating an indoor and outdoor space at the cabin.

“This will provide opportunity for clinicians to engage with patients and for staff the opportunity to leave the clinical setting to benefit from the peace and quiet around the cabin.

"The major piece of the jigsaw puzzle, of creating a visionary environment has the potential to have an untold impact on the futures of patients, their families and the staff working at Huntlyburn for years to come"
