Barrie Foundation Backed By Chamber Golfers
The Barrie Douglas Foundation has been boosted by a near £1000 donation from the Perthshire Chamber of Commerce.
The locally-based charity was chosen to benefit from the Carbon-backed 2019 Chamber Golf Day held at Pitlochry Golf Club over the summer.
The Fair City finance firm has supported the sell-out event for the last eight years.
Chamber chief executive Vicki Unite said: “We are delighted to support the Barrie Douglas Foundation, which is doing so much good work nurturing young sporting talent.”
The Foundation was set-up in memory of the 69-year-old Perth businessman who died two years ago after taking ill while captaining Scottish Golf’s European Boys at the Team Championship in La Manga.
The aim was to ensure he was remembered fondly through support for youth sport.
Vicki said: “Barrie was well-known in the business community and a regular at Chamber events down the years.”
Carbon managing director Gordon Wilson added: “It seemed entirely appropriate that the annual Perthshire Chamber Golf Day should support the Foundation.
“Barrie was a hugely influential figure in Scottish youth golf and we have been proud to support many of the events and fundraisers put together by the trustees in his memory.”
Passionate in promoting junior golf, the one-time Scottish boys international and champion at Blairgowrie and Craigie Hill golf clubs, also served with Perth and Kinross County and as a GB&I selector for the R&A.
“The business community in Perth and Kinross and beyond has been incredibly supportive and we are thrilled to have been singled out for backing from Perthshire Chamber and Carbon,” said trustee Jennifer Davidson.
