Sept 2021: Ballater Golf Club, with its breathtaking scenery and challenging golf course, once again hosted the Ballater Charitable Chiels Texas Scramble.

This annual fundraiser was first organised by Sandy Barclay after he was diagnosed with motor neuron disease (MND). The Ballater Charitable Chiels joined forces with Sandy - and latterly his widow Lindsay, to host this fantastic fundraising event. Over a decade after Sandy's inaugral Texas Scramble, the Ballater Charitable Chiels continue to organise this fantastic annual golf tournament in honour and loving memory of Sandy and Lindsay Barclay.

This year's Texas Scramble (held on Friday 10th September) raised approximately £16,500 which will support various good causes in Scotland. We are delighted to learn the Euan MacDonald Centre for MND Research will receive £5,000 to further vital research into motor neuron disease. This latest donation brings the total donated to the Euan MacDonald Centre by the Ballater Charitable Chiels to £179,00.

We are extremely grateful to the Chiels for their generous support.
